Our Mission

To provide information, financial support, and additional resources to families, advocates and professionals confronting Autism/Pervasive Development Delays, from delay suspicion through treatment.

The mission of The Autism Resource Foundation is to provide a source for information, training, financial assistance and education for families who have children with autism. We strive to provide assistance in all of the different areas used to confront and treat the disorder. This is accomplished through sharing experiences and other information, fundraising events and helping to provide for the initial and continuing education of individuals who administer the different therapies that treat the disorder.

Fundraising Events

Our main source of income are the Legends of Huntsville Hockey Silent Jersey Auction / Scrimmage Game in the spring and the ARF Charity Golf Tournament in the fall.

State and Local Grants

Over the years, we have been very fortunate to be awarded grants from the Huntsville Hospital Community Health Initiative, the United Way of Madison County, the Combined Federal Campaign, and the Boeing Employees Community Fund.


We qualify for exemption under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code so any donation will be tax deductible. Donations are greatly appreciated.
