Our goal is to partner with passionate individuals, organizations, and governments to bring creative, dynamic, and effective solutions that reshape the possibilities for individuals with autism and the professionals that work with them. The PPAF is an organization that focuses on helping families affected by autism who are facing challenges and need financial support, on raising funds for autism research, to encourage the pursuit of education and self-improvement by awarding scholarships to extraordinary young leaders in the industry, increase community awareness in the Bay Area and across the globe, to compile and disseminate the most up-to-date information regarding multi-disciplinary approaches for treating autism. Our mission is to educate families, healthcare professionals, and all communities about the characteristics and needs of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders.
We are a foundation built on compassion for those who face the day to day challenges that autism brings. Here at the Pedro Pallares Autism Foundation, we develop solutions for communities around the world in need of services, cultivate a new generation of educated specialists, and drive autism research to new possibilities.
