My name is Mary Jo Fowler and my life has been changed by a special little girl with autism. Now I want to give back by supporting her and children like her by swimming for the Autism Society of East TN!
The Autism Society of East TN is a non-profit organization with a 501c3 status that serves all of the families affected by Autism in the 36 counties of East TN. We strive to build a community that empowers those affected by Autism through educational, social and supportive services. In the Tri-Cities we do this with monthly social activities, Lego Club, support groups, annual Autism education conferences and Christmas parties among other events. We also connect families to local resources, provide a lending library and assist families in the navigation of the special education system. Our goal is to engage, strengthen, and ease the transition for families and individuals along this lifelong journey.
