Autism: Autism affects 1 in 68 children born in the U.S. More children will be diagnosed with autism this year than with AIDS, diabetes, and cancer combined. Autism is the fastest growing developmental disability in the U.S. Autism Tennessee is making a difference: Autism Tennessee is the only non-profit of its kind serving the needs of local families living with autism through the areas of support, advocacy, and education. Autism Tennessee receives 6,000+ requests for information and support each year. Autism Tennessee receives no state or federal funding. Autism Tennessee’s entire budget is raised through grants and fundraisers 100% of the money raised stays in Middle Tennessee Now that you know, I ask that you consider supporting this event. Thank you in advance for considering this request. I am proud of the valuable services that Autism Tennessee provides to our community, and I hope you will join me in making Pieces of Hope a success.
