The Atlas Foundation for Autism is a nonprofit school and community program that provides expanded support for the educational, vocational, and life skill needs of individuals of all ages, many of whom have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder.  What makes Atlas special is its continuing tradition of custom-tailoring fun and educational programs to enhance confidence, communication, and strong joyful relationships.  We treat each of our students as the unique individuals they are supporting our community for who they are because of their Abilities and their diverse cultural and personal backgrounds.

An integral part of Atlas’ mission is to provide resources to ALL families that need our services. In 2021 these are just a few ways in which your donations will be put to use:

  • With your generosity, when it is safe to do so, we can continue to open our doors onsite to children of every ability along with their parents, caregivers, and siblings for an Open Play every other Saturday and hopefully Sundays, as well. Children can play in the sensory gym, art/music rec room, or in one of our sensory-friendly classrooms while their accompanying adults can enjoy the freedom of being in a worry-free zone.
  • Building internship/volunteer opportunities for students of diverse backgrounds and abilities
  • +21 PEER programs
  • Respite and retreat programs in NYC and in upstate NY for individuals and their families
  • Workshops and community events including the Everything Autism & Conference and Resource Fair
  • Educational and leadership mentorship programs for caregivers, educators, and community members
We ask your commitment in supporting our annual appeal by making a donation of $5,000, $1,000, $500, $100, or any amount that you can afford. Our program is home grown and we fought to maintain our team, our location, our vendors, and to adapt after the last 9 months of Covid 19 and its impact on our programming…. We restructured and stretched our resources. This year has reminded us how strong and how united our community is on so many levels. Your generosity will make a huge difference in our community and allow us to continue this important work.

Remember that every donation, big or small, makes a significant impact on a child’s development. Please make your donation via our website at or by check, made out to: Atlas Foundation for Autism (252 West 29th Street, 3rd Floor, New York, NY 10001).  All of your donations are 100% tax deductible.
