What We Do.
Rock Out Autism is a non-for-profit foundation that raises money and awareness for the importance of autism services and peer mentorship. It has been 5 years since Rock Out Autism has been launched, and in past 5 events the foundation has nearly $125,000 for Autism Services. We are currently in communication with the CEO's various corporations, to help spread our cause nationwide! Another side of Rock Out Autism is the element of putting together private meet and greet “Rock Shows” for children with autism. Children diagnosed with autism, and other developmental disabilities, would never, in the real world, have the chance to see a real live “Rock Show” that meets their needs. The children, as a bonus, get to meet and talk with the performers after the show, not only making the children happy but also giving the performers a great sense of accomplishment.
