The sponsor, the Mahoning Valley chapter of the Autism Society of America, was founded by local families in 1989 to supporting families in Mahoning, Trumbull and Columbiana counties. Its mission is to improve the quality of life for families living with an ASD diagnosis, and to bring about community change and opportunities for individuals working through life with this disability. Our staff and volunteers are dedicated to accomplishing this through information and referral, family support, advocacy, professional development, raising awareness and resource development.
