Jul. 23 /CSRwire/ - NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., July 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ –- Newport Beach-based Buchanan Street Partners renewed their support for Talk About Curing Autism (TACA) with a $25,000 commitment at their annual Challenge for the Children fundraiser. Buchanan Street President and CEO Robert Brunswick is issuing this donation as a challenge in hopes of finding another partner for TACA.
TACA is a national organization, headquartered in Costa Mesa, California, dedicated to providing information, resources, and support to families affected by autism. For families who have just received the autism diagnosis, TACA aims to speed up the cycle time from the diagnosis to effective treatments. TACA helps to strengthen the autism community by connecting families and the professionals who can help them, and helping people with autism be the best they can be.
"TACA brings forth their entrepreneurial spirit, and continually provides research, guidance, and important information to help families living with autism," said Robert Brunswick of Buchanan Street Partners.
Autism is the fastest growing developmental disability in the United States affecting one in 150 children. TACA serves more than 9,000 families annually, with 95% of their programs provided at no charge. Because of the rapid increase in the rate of autism, more than 400 new families each month seek out TACA for help and support.
"The generosity of Buchanan Street Partners has a direct impact on the lives of children with autism," said TACA Executive Director Lisa Ackerman. "Bright futures are possible for these special children, through the help of the community. Early intervention and unique biomedical treatment offer the opportunity for these children to live the future of their dreams."
