First Responder Training

Our training teams kept busy training 2,360 First Responders, Law Enforcement, Fire, EMS, and Healthcare workers. Not only did we train MD law enforcement, but several departments outside our state to include the NYPD, Hickory Creek, TX, and the US Secret Service.

Resource Center

Our Resource Center continued to provide vital support for families in the community. 1,306 individuals were provided support and nearly 15,000 participated in Resource Fairs and events, virtually and in person.

Recreational Events

Families enjoyed our legacy in-person events as well as virtual, fun-seeking alternatives to in-person recreation. From Ladew Gardens to virtual scavenger hunts to the Ironbirds game, there was truly something for everyone.

Adapting to and Growing Through the Pandemic

After a year of virtual programming, PFA was finally able to return to the communities we serve with in-person resource fairs, training and recreational opportunities. Virtual programming, which has proven to be an essential part of our community outreach, will continue to be a format that we offer to families who may have challenges with childcare, transportation, or other barriers.

This year we served a record-setting 21,908 individuals across the state through our programming.

                  I'd like to personally thank each and every one of you for giving my family these Ironbirds tickets. We had the opportunity to get together with other family members that we hadn't seen in such a LONG time! We were able to have fun, enjoy each other's company, and most of all, enjoy a great game.

Pathfinders for Autism ROCKS!!! Thank you again for providing families like mine opportunities to have fun and live our best lives!!

Pam and Taylor
