|About||Winston's Wish is a statewide non-profit foundation created to support children with autism and their families who reside in South Carolina.|
|Mission||The mission of Winston's Wish Foundation is to enable South Carolina's children with autism and their families to thrive. We offer new educational opportunities and resources for these children and their families. The Foundation promotes a heightened awareness and a deeper understanding of autism in the greater community. In the future, Winston's Wish Foundation, with community partners, will create the Palmetto Center for Autism, a state-of-the-art treatment clinic for children with autism spectrum disorders.|
Established in the fall of 2006, Winston's Wish Foundation strives to help all children with autism and their families reach their fullest potential and thrive every day. The Foundation and it's efforts are funded through charitable donations and grants. By partnering with community volunteers, businesses and state agencies, outreach initiatives and programs are implemented throughout South Carolina.
Winston's Wish Foundation supports and advocates for early intensive intervention which is evidence-based and peer-reviewed. It's programs and outreach initiatives demonstrate the organization's commitment to education, inclusion and access to appropriate medical care which reflect best practices in autism treatment.
