One in 59 births in The United States result in the diagnosis of Autism, continuing to be one of the fastest-growing developmental disorders in America.  Locally, thousands of family's struggle each day with diagnosis, treatment, education, and support. Autism related services can cost families over $60,000 a year on average.

The Great Lakes Collaborative for Autism (GLCA) is dedicated to creating new opportunities for individuals and families touched by autism through data driven and outcome-focused programs and services. The GLCA collaborates with local partners to identify and fill gaps in services in our community.

Over the past thirteen years, The GLCA has raised and distributed over $1million for programs, services, and scholarships in Northwest Ohio.  In addition, the GLCA and partners secured nearly $2 million in grant funding for new programs and services.  100%, of every dollar raised, stays local and has a direct impact on families in our community.  


Join our efforts, and together we will further grow services and opportunities for families in our community.  We respectfully request your consideration to support our fundraising efforts by buying a Hawaii raffle ticket.
