Tom Bohager,the founder of Autism Hope Alliance, will be dedicating more of his time to assist the organization in expanding its reach to help additional families dealing with the diagnosis of Autism.
Sep 03, 2016 /prREACH/ -- For Immediate Release:
Tom Bohager rejoins Autism Hope Alliance (AHA), charitable non-profit, to connect the natural foods industry with emphasis on helping families with autistic children.
Tom Bohager, CEO, resigned from Enzymedica in June of 2016. This gives him more time to pursue his passion of helping families. In addition to having more time to assist AHA as one of its Directors, he has also funded a legacy grant that will offset the cost of administrative overhead for the next three to five years. A new headquarters space in Punta Gorda FL. has also been donated at no charge to AHA. The new location will provide the additional space needed to support the ever-growing “Autism Pantry Program” which provides nutritious foods and supplements to families in need. The goal of AHA is to expand the program to better assist more families and help offset the growing cost of nutritional provisions.
The Autism Pantry Program provides gluten free and casein free foods and supplements, donated by sponsoring companies in the natural foods industry, to families in need of financial assistance or who wish to try a new brand without the expense. In 2015, AHA provided assistance through this and other programs to over 4,500 families.
Through the legacy grant, AHA has hired 3 new full time employees to assist in this expansion endeavor, a Director of Communications and two Program Coordinators. The purpose of the grant is to offset the administrative and employment costs of running the organization. By means of this grant, people who donate to AHA can be assured that their donation will go directly to assisting families facing the unique challenges of Autism by means of education and financial assistance.
The Autism Hope Alliance embodies hope for families facing the diagnosis of Autism through education, financial support and volunteerism. It is the first non-profit foundation for Autism to spring from the natural foods industry.
