SafeMinds

SafeMinds is a non-profit organization founded by parents of children with autism.  SafeMinds believes that the epidemic of childhood autism and the disabilities that accompany autism will end when our environment, food, and health care products are universally safe and non-toxic. SafeMinds works for justice, accountability and integrity in science and public policy as a means for preventing these disabilities in future generations. We educate and empower people, focus on prevention and fund research to find treatments that will lead to recovery for those living with autism.

The Thinking Moms' Revolution (TMR)

The Thinking Moms’ Revolution (TMR) started as a group of friends who met while trying to heal their children, mostly from autism. Those friends realized that the group dynamic was something special and wrote a book (The Thinking Moms’ Revolution:  Autism Beyond the Spectrum) in order to share that with the world.  In the meantime, they found another way to share with the world and started a blog at www.thinkingmomsrevolution.com where twenty-three moms and one dad blogged on all things related to children’s (and sometimes parents’) health.  TMR recently launched Team TMR, a non-profit organization that provides grants to families who wish to try a new therapy or treatment that they could not otherwise afford, or to continue one that they can no longer afford.  All proceeds from the book Evolution of a Revolution:  From Hope to Healing go directly to Team TMR grants.

Below are the very committed organizations that are a part of the Autism Policy Reform Coalition (APRC).  These organizations have a united focus on the continued education of public officials and ongoing encouragment of legislation that is intended to improve the lives of people with autism and their families.  The APRC actively solicits input on formulating a national consensus on autism policy from all autism advocacy organizations in the country. 

Focus for Health Foundation

The Focus for Health Foundation is dedicated to ensuring that every individual has access to the information necessary to make optimal health decisions for themselves and their families.

The mission of the Focus for Health Foundation (FFH) is to promote advocacy, education, and research to combat the rise of chronic illness occurring around the world. We support efforts that increase public awareness of the connection between hazardous environmental exposures and the immune system, and address how social determinants of health and inequality within populations creates vulnerability to disease.

Focus for Health is committed to decreasing the rising trend of both autism and chronic illness triggered by negative environmental influences. FFH believes that lack of transparency in both profit-driven corporations and governmental regulatory agencies have reduced the public’s capacity to make the informed, educated decisions necessary for optimal health. FFH supports all efforts which empower individuals to ask questions and do their research before making any decisions about which foods, products, or procedures they allow, especially for the “vulnerable child.”
