What is Autism?

Dear Friends, (members, stakeholders donors and or community partners) we, the Board of Directors wanted to inform you of some transitions within our organization. 

First of all, we would like to thank all our community partners, sponsors, donors and members for your financial support for 2016. We were able to provide over $14,000 in scholarships for our Swim and Safety Program,Drakey's iPad Scholarships and our annual scholarship program to members. We have been able to support our AWARE (adults with autism recreational events) Group, Teen Club and our Alpha Sisterhood sorority which was funded through a Hussman Foundation grant. We have been able to continue to provide education on autism to schools and community service providing organizations through our Just Like You Autism Film. We have five support groups in the metro and one in Wichita. We have established many wonderful community partnerships in 2016, including the Nelson Art Gallery for our sensory friendly event and our adults with autism art program.

Unfortunately, our fundraisers this year to help support operational finances has fallen short of our budget. This would include operating costs of day to day expenses and salaries for staff. It was a very difficult decision but we needed to eliminate the Executive Director position. However, we are happy that Jennifer Smith will continue to volunteer, where/when she can.
 
We are happy to announce that our office is re-locating. Beginning 2017, we will be sharing office space at KCART! The office is located at:
 
The University of Kansas Edwards Campus
Suite 270, Regnier Hall
12600 Quivira Rd.
Overland Park, KS  66213
 
As of December 1, 2016, please submit all correspondence through email to info@asaheartland.org or send to our mailing address P.O. Box 4455, Olathe, Kansas, 66063
 
Our phone number will remain the same: 913-706-0042
                           
We, as a board want to assure you we are focused on the mission of ASH and serving our community. Our programs, support groups and scholarship programs will continue.
