TACT Kids Inc

Adult ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) services cost the U.S. $175-196 billion per year and the unemployment rate for young adults with autism is estimated at up to 90% nationwide. In the next decade 500,000 teens and young adults with autism will enter into adulthood - that is an average of 50,000 per year.  What many people don't know is that a large number of these 50,000 new adults are UNTAPPED laborers capable of working at a level of exactitude, accountability and commitment that most other employees are incapable of.  T.A.C.T's  goal is to meet the immediate demands of these ASD students aging out of the system as well as those of Colorado's trades employers who are in great demand of skilled trade workers  and one Denver builder estimates that he could construct at least 10% more homes this year if he had enough workers.  T.A.C.T (Teaching the Autism Community Trades) is a  Denver based non profit that teaches trade and technical skills to young adults with autism before they leave high school and develops interests and expertise for life. As the only organization in the country teaching highly sought-after, specialized skills to these exceptional students, T.A.C.T. is paving the way for the future of ASD families. The Colorado Department of Education recently called us "pioneers" and we are definitely trailblazing and proud! Recently we were featured on Denver 7 News and were named in the top 5 special needs class by Colorado Parent Magazine and featured in their August magazine.  http://www.thedenverchannel.com/news/local-news/school-for-autistic-students-opening-in-rino-this-fall Please help T.A.C.T open the doors of opportunity and build the futures of young people on the spectrum.

Third-party Processing Fees

Third-party vendors charge credit card and electronic check processing fees when you make an online donation. Two percent of each donation helps to cover these fees and ensures the program's long-term sustainability. The two percent processing fee is one of the lowest processing fees in the country.

Receipts and Tax Credits

You will automatically receive an on-screen acknowledgement letter and an e-mailed copy for your donation. Every donation is tax deductible as a charitable contribution to the full extent permitted by law. If you make a donation to a charity that offers Child Care or Enterprise Zone credits (additional Colorado state tax credits), Community First Foundation will acknowledge that your donation was processed successfully, but the charity will issue you an additional receipt pursuant to that. To learn more about these tax credits, contact the specific nonprofits.
