Hope Autism Foundation ("HAF") is a not-for-profit public charity dedicated to establishing and supporting daily life enhancement programs to meet the vocational and social needs of adults with Autism Spectrum Disorders ("ASD") within the New Jersey community.
HAF supports the development and maintenance of programs that enroll adults over the age of 21 who continue to require individual supports after they have completed their school-based education. These programs will use empirically validated teaching strategies and techniques derived from the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis ("ABA"). The participants in these programs will have a place that will assist them with life-long vocational opportunities, while promoting independence and a high quality of life through ongoing education.
This event is SOLD OUT due to the overwhelming success of online ticket sales. There will be no ticket sales at the door.
Thank you for your support!
For those who purchased tickets in advance, please note that tour begins at 29 Colts Glen Lane, Far Hills.
Please remember to wear socks as you may be asked to remove your shoes.
The next gala to support Hope Autism Foundation is scheduled for Friday, November 14, 2014.
We are once again planning a special evening to support much needed programs such as Hope Autism Solutions. Please check this site for additional details as we approach the date.
