Relieving the Financial Burden for Families


Families affected by autism want what every family wants – for their loved ones to be healthy, to learn, enjoy friendships, work, to live fully.  Too often they struggle to find and afford effective interventions that will make all the difference throughout their loved one’s journey.

The Flutie Foundation helps to relieve the financial burden for families by:   

  • Providing direct financial assistance for families and serving as a resource for information on local service providers. 
  • Funding service organizations that are providing critical, innovative and responsive programming for people with autism. 
  • Advocating for greater acceptance and awareness of autism spectrum disorder.
