Together Autism Is Limitless.

Great Lakes Collaborative for Autism

We are dedicated to growing the opportunities, future, and lives for all touched by autism. Together we can change the future.

Since 2004, the GLCA has worked to assist local families touched by autism access services. As our community has come together, committed to collaboration, and increased services, we have been inspired by the successes and potential of all touched by autism when provided opportunity!  Join us!  100% of every dollar makes a direct impact in our community. Learn what you can do to change the future!
