ABOUT THE FUND

Named in memory of Clara Lacher, one of QSAC's founders, the fund raises support for QSAC's programs and services for children and adults with autism throughout New York City and Long Island. The funds provide critical support where it's most needed for QSAC's programs serving children and adults with autism and their families. Clara was among QSAC's founders who came together in the late 1970s that led to the creation of QSAC. As an organization that initially served 20 students with autism through a summer school program, today QSAC provides direct services to more than 2,100 children and adults with autism each year. In addition, QSAC offers more than 24 unique programs and services for people with autism and their families in addition to trainings for parents and professionals. Your support of the Lacher Fund helps make the following impact statistics possible:

  • 100% of our preschoolers graduated with a way to communicate
  • 7 out of 12 students in our early intervention classroom began talking
  • 16 students with autism attended college
  • QSAC provided direct services to more than 2,100 children and adults with autism
  • 20 adults with autism were trained as a part of QSAC's self-advocacy program
  • More than 3,000 parents and educators received free in-person and online trainings from QSAC

 
QSAC is a New York City and Long Island based nonprofit that supports children and adults with autism, together with their families, in achieving greater independence, realizing their future potential, and contributing to their communities in a meaningful way by offering person-centered services. QSAC pursues this mission through direct services that provide a supportive and individualized setting for children and adults with autism to improve their communication, socialization, academic, and functional skills.
