Avergan Foundation was founded in October of 2013 by Allison and Tom Barnhill to promote the acceptance and awareness of autism spectrum disorders and to provide hope to affected families.  Our scholarship program supports families with children ages 2-5 years old, on the autism spectrum, that are currently utilizing early intervention services from qualified private schools and therapy providers.  Services from these private providers can be very expensive and the financial burdens can be overwhelming for the families. This is where Avergan Foundation can help!  We provide a scholarship program to help ensure that families that want to provide early intervention services to their children will not be impeded by financial limitations.  Currently, we are focusing on children in Anne Arundel County, Maryland.
