Helping Families with Autism,
Right Here, Right Now
Families with ASD, a grassroots, non-profit 501 (c) 3 public charity organization living with autism in the Greater Cincinnati & Northern Kentucky Area since March of 2005.
What started out as a small autism support group founded by Gregory and Julia Ann Smith to help their son who had been diagnosed with autism, has grown into one of the largest grassroots autism non-profits in the state of Ohio.

Families with ASD has NO paid staff and is completely run by volunteers. Most of the volunteers have a loved one with autism and must hold down full time jobs to support their families. They volunteer what little free time they have left over to help the 500 plus families that are serviced by Families with ASD.
