Project Description


Spring Forward For Autism holds monthly events in the Melbourne area the prove to be fun and beneficial night out on the town! From our yearly gala event to our rummage sales, every time together is a chance to network and continue our mission to help families affected by autism.

Where does the Spring Forward for Autism money go?

To private families and organizations is Brevard County affected by Autism Spectrum disorders. Your contributions have provided grants to cover incremental expenses related to raising a child with autism including diagnosis, therapies, sensory equipment, medical equipment and other treatments.

How to get involved in Spring Forward for Autism?

Become a sponsor, donate an in-kind service, or auction item. You can also volunteer the day of event.





Please join us for an upcoming event!

Our work would not be possible without the support of our event participants.  Every dollar raised goes to families in need with minimal operational costs.

Lifetime costs of someone living with Autism range from $3 to $7 million.

Few parents can afford to directly pay for the costs of continual, lifelong individualized treatment for a single autistic child.

The Cost of Living on the Spectrum
The cost for care of a child with autism must be estimated on both direct and indirect costs for the child’s medical, behavioral, and educational programs.
