Providing Autism Links & Supports (PALS) is the 501c3 non-profit supporting organization for the University of Central Florida Center for Autism & Related Disabilities (UCF-CARD) and it’s constituents. Due to UCF CARD’s limited funding from the state to provide supports and services to over 15,000 individuals, PALS fills gaps by creating opportunities for autism in our local communities through social, family, collaborative, therapeutic, awareness and educational programs and events.
Donations to PALS are tax deductible according to Florida state law. All funds raised remain within Central Florida.
The core values that PALS promotes are dignity, respect, accountability, collaboration, compassion and trust. PALS will strive for a collaborative effort by staff, family members, outside individuals and agencies. The abilities, interests, and preferences of all people served by PALS will be the prime focus of consideration while providing education, services and programs.
