WHAT IS F.A.N.?
Fresno Autism Network (F.A.N.) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization which was founded in 2011 by Stephanie Ramirez, mother of an autistic child. With the support of a small board devoted to raising autism awareness, and helping other families in the community, F.A.N. made it's debute with an Autism Awareness Fun Run in October of 2011. This organization was established to provide supportive services for families and children affected by autism, and educating the community about autism.
It is our mission to educate the community about autism, to bring awareness, acceptance, and to help make the complex lives of families with ASD a little easier, by providing an avenue of supportive services including; social support, emotional/ spiritual consultation, and assistance in finding resources for these families. We also have a long-term goal and vision of opening a "play and learn" center for ASD children in Fresno Ca.
