Thank you to KIWANIS INTERNATIONAL- HERMOSA BEACH

We can’t thank enough the Kiwanis Club Hermosa Beach for graciously hosting us for lunch! What an amazing organization who has been serving children of need and community in Hermosa Beach since 1926. The women and men of Kiwanis gave us the opportunity to share our vision to help individuals with autism in the community they support and we were embraced with love and support. We love the wonderful things the Kiwanis Club is doing and we are so excited at the prospect of hosting an event with their support! Together we can really have a positive impact on the lives of so many individuals with autism! Thank you for hosting us and it is our sincerest hope to work with the Kiwanis in the very near future!

Teen with Autism Creates the Business of his Dreams!

A teen with autism creates the business of his dreams! We are working on developing and growing his business.
16 year old Jeremy Bernstein is an entrepreneur with his jewelry making business. When Jeremy was in the fourth grade, he had a project called “Dreams to Jobs” and designed his jewelry making business. Jeremy’s business plan involves working with others like himself and including himself in the business community which requires social skills often difficult for persons with Autism.
Being a business owner according to Jeremy means that he needs a lot of patience, and that he encourages other people to believe in themselves.

“Shop A Little, Help A Lot” Campaign

With unemployment among people with autism exceeding 90%, every action on our part as consumers, can make a difference in a person’s life.  Valuing a person by purchasing their product, helps develop their self-esteem and gives them incentive to continue their pursuits. Their products are made with heart and love. We are concerned with what adulthood would be like for individuals with autism. All of us are touched by autism and its economic burden. Autism’s costs to U.S. economy estimated $265 billion for 2015. Together we can help individuals with autism to become self-supporting and contributing members of their community.
