$100 donation helps pay for pool time during off hours for quieter swim instruction

$500 donation allows for a small group class on swim safety and specialized autism swim instruction
$1000 covers the program for an entire summer!

Water safety and drowning prevention are essential to the well being of many individuals on the autism spectrum. With sensory challenges and high anxiety, learning to swim can be a huge obstacle for those affected by autism. By providing a safe space with instructors trained to work and understand issues those with autism may face, our goal is to teach individuals with autism to swim or learn basic water safety skills. To provide this life saving program free to participants we are raising $10,000. Read more about this & schedule your donation.  Thank you.
