Volunteering Has Changed!

But We Still NEED You!

As you can imagine, the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted us in every possible way. AutismOklahoma is following the CDC guidelines and as such, we are cancelling or postponing most in-person gatherings. Your safety, and the safety of family, friends, volunteers, and your hometown community is our highest priority. This is an opportunity for us all to live and demonstrate the flexibility on which our families survive. 

We know that the disruptions to routines and school and work schedules we’re experiencing can be most unsettling to our kids with autism. We have developed a variety of programs and ways to engage families and volunteers in virtual programming.  

Thank you all for being such an enthusiastic and vital part of AutismOklahoma and the nearly 5,000 children, adults and families we directly impact each year.

Not looking for a pen pal? There is also a way for LifeGroup & SWITCH leaders to sign up their group and make a difference!
