About Jaden’s Voice
Jaden’s Voicehas become a resource for families affected by autism. It was founded in 2010 by Terri Matthews after her son, Jaden, was diagnosed with the condition. The organization was established as a result of an unmet need—a deficiency of viable options to help struggling families dealing with the effects of autism. Jaden’s Voice is a welcoming community that works to provide services and resources that will enhance the lives of underserved children and their families who have been impacted by Autism. Through the provisions of innovative programs, autism education and support for families through school integration, therapy, recreational activities and advocacy, Jaden’s Voice creates a bridge for children, their families and the community. To date, the organization has helped more than a thousand families and continues to raise awareness through multiple initiatives.
