POAC is an amazing place that is dedicated to helping children and adults with autism achieve their fullest potential by providing quality training, support and recreation.

POAC needs your help. Their fundraisers that raised money for this organization have been canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. To see this great place that helps so many possibly have to close their doors breaks my heart.

My family and husband have raised money with many fundraisers he has run for POAC Services in Ocean County. My husband has been in charge of this fundraiser,
"End of Summer BBQ", for POAC along with The American Legion, Sons of the American Legion, and the American Legion Auxiliary for several years. This year could be a little different. This is why they need help, because fundraisers have pretty much ended.

My stepson is autistic and POAC has always been there for him and my family. I can't say enough about this wonderful place for parents, kids, and family members.

POAC's Facebook page has so many options for autistic families during this social distancing time. Storytime with Gary (Director of POAC), Yoga, and so much more.

From POAC's webpage:

POAC provides training for parents and educators; recreational and support services to children and adults with autism and their families; and training for police and first responders which, we are proud to say, has saved the lives of children with autism all over New Jersey.

Additionally, POAC supports ongoing quality research and promotes legislative issues that impact those with autism and their families. POAC is meeting the needs of those with autism in a very real way every day.

COVID-19 has affected so many people, this organization is such a positive for the community. Please help if you can. CLICK HERE to help.
