As an organization run entirely by self-advocates, PCAA accomplished much in this past year through the work of almost entirely unpaid volunteers. This past year, they did over 2500 hours of work to build Autistic community in Pittsburgh.
With funding from last year’s gala, they:
- Increased the meeting frequency of our adult peer support groups from once a quarter to once a month.
- Provided space, equipment, and training personnel to five self-advocacy training events.
- Led six autism-competency trainings for local businesses and organizations.
- Hosted five peer support drop-in sessions over the winter holidays, in addition to our regularly scheduled peer support groups.
With funding from this year's gala, they hope to:
- Increase the meeting frequency of our adult peer support groups to three times a month.
- Increase our self-advocacy training offerings to six per year.
- Hold twelve autism-competency trainings.
- Be able to pay Autistic adults to lead peer support groups.
PCCA so appreciates the support of their steering committee members and all of their allies as they continue to build Autistic community in Pittsburgh. For questions or to pay by check, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
