The cost of providing services for children with autism and other disabilities is much higher than the educational costs of a typical school due to the complex needs of our children and their families as well as a need for intensive therapies. We maintain a ratio in the classroom of 1 special educator for every 4 students, and 1 adult for every 2 students. Most of our students are from low income communities, and there are no government subsidies to cover these expenses.
The financial obligations of AFDA are met through the generosity of our partners and the faithfulness of God who blesses our steps of faith and obedience. We are so grateful for the partnership of individuals, foundations, and companies who value children with disabilities by helping us to serve them and their families.
Although not a complete list, we do wish to thank the following partners for their financial donations, donations-in-kind, and for their encouragement, love and prayers:
Thrive Global Consulting
Christian Educational Society
as well as many individuals, families, and others who graciously give “so their giving may be in secret” (Matthew 6:3-4, the Bible).
