About Us

Kids Who K.A.R.E. was established in 2001, inspired by the fact that the founder's younger brother is autistic. Autism is a neurological disorder that affects the behavior, speech, and learning abilities of 1 in 150 people. The mission of Kids Who K.A.R.E. is to educate young people about autism in order to facilitate and encourage among them acceptance and understanding of their autistic and otherwise mentally challenged peers. It is our belief that the key to tolerance is knowledge, and it is our hope that as a result of this venture, in the next generation we will be a little closer to finally unlocking this great door. Kids Who K.A.R.E also works to promote autism awareness among all age groups, and actively raises money for autism research.
