For more than 45 years, the Autism Society of Minnesota (AuSM) has helped families and individuals with autism build a community that acts without judgment, searches for new possibilities, and connects us to each other. Dollars raised through Steps of Hope fund valuable programs and services that allow people affected by autism to grow and thrive. AuSM needs you to join us on our quest to help the Minnesota autism community. 

As demand for scholarships for camp, social skills classes, trainings, and other educational events has increased, a portion of dollars raised during Steps of Hope also will go back to the Minnesota autism community through AuSM scholarships. Click here to learn more about AuSM scholarships.
