What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Our services and programs are tailored to the unique needs of individuals with autism. We enable them to have healthy, safe, and fulfilling lives in their own communities. Our expertise helps individuals – many of whom have significant lifelong needs – be as independent as possible and achieve their goals and dreams. We help families connect with resources, keep their children safe, find services, and resolve school issues. We also provide guidance on lifelong issues including employment, residential options, and planning for children’s needs beyond parents’ lives. Our training for professionals such as doctors and teachers has increased the quality of care for individuals with autism. We advocate for the needs of the autism community with state policy-makers. Our education efforts have increased public awareness of autism and helped NC have a lower average age of diagnosis than the U.S.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To ensure that ASNC’s programs are tailored to the unique needs of individuals with autism and empower them to live healthy, safe, and fulfilling lives in their communities.

To ensure families are empowered to understand their loved one’s diagnosis, support, and treatment options, and navigate and connect with community resources.

To ensure ASNC teaches evidence-based best practices and works to increase the understanding and appreciation of people with autism in the community.

Improving lives - Address barriers to diagnostics, severe behavior support, and treatment for very young and school-age children as well as adults. Expand opportunities for adults to build independence, increase self-advocacy, and connect to employment options. Equip programs across the organization to provide safe and holistic, person-centered services as an integral part of the delivery of whole-person health care.

Supporting Families - Provide families across North Carolina with parent-to-parent support, information, and resources to help their family members build fulfilling lives. Assess gaps across the agency and NC communities and address them through our efforts and increased partnerships with diverse community stakeholders to reach traditionally underserved members of the population. Create the most efficient and effective public policy strategies to advocate for the needs of the autism community.

Educating Communities - Increase autism awareness, acceptance, and appreciation among all members of the community. Provide excellent customer service in all encounters with members of the community. Enhance ASNC’s brand awareness so that people know where to get help throughout their lifetimes.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
