About our Charities:
Autism has become an epidemic with 1 in 88 children now being identified with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD), with that number increasing to 1 in 54 for boys. Locally, thousands of families are affected by autism. Historically in Northwest Ohio, support and services have been fragmented, disjointed, difficult to access, or non-existent. In 2011, The Great Lakes Center for Autism changed its name to Great Lakes Collaborative for Autism to reflect the community commitment to working together, improving access to cutting edge services and care, and providing support for all those affected by autism.
THE WABASH CANNONBALL TRAIL is a 63 mile multi-use recreational trail in Northwest Ohio. It provides non-motorized access to hikers, bikers, equestrians, and cross-country skiers. The 12 foot wide trail surface varies within the different jurisdictions, from asphalt to hard packed cinder ballast.
Hands of Grace is a non-profit ministry of 37 churches and 10 agencies united to provide volunteer services to the elderly and dsiabled residents of Fulton County enabling them to remain independent and in their homes as long as safely possible. Hands of Grace also has an Adult Day Center offering companionship, friendship, socialization, physical and mental stimulation to those persons who may have become isolated from the community through their physcial and/or cognitive limitations.
