“GHA Autism Supports accepted Tommy when he was hopeless, rejected, broken, unhappy, and sometimes violent and was restrained often several times a day.  GHA supported and understood him so that he is now thriving and living a happy, productive life that is free from restraints.”

—Tom and Sue Jasinski


“I was amazed at the thoroughness of GHA Autism Supports’ approach in determining if Emily was an appropriate match for their services.  I knew they took the entire process seriously and would be honest in their ability to serve her unique needs.  I remember well being told–We will help you every step of the way, we will be there for you, we will even cry for you–At that point, I had no doubt I was making the right decision for my daughter.”

—Amy Whichello


“GHA came along at just the right time for our family.  It was becoming more evident that our son had special needs that we were not equipped to address.  We are so grateful to be a part of an organization that maintains high professional standards in meeting the physical and social needs of individuals with Autism.”

—Curtis and Jackie Bynum


“GHA Autism Supports provides high quality staff to support individuals with autism, even when emergencies arise such as hurricanes, floods and pandemics. GHA is able to adjust as circumstances change so that the individuals being served continue to be safe and as engaged as possible.”

“GHA Autism Supports contributes to providing persons with autism with meaningful activities. They also have done a great deal in the community related to education — my family and I understand the gifts and challenges of people with autism so much better because of GHA, her programs, and — most of all — her people!”
