Autism Acceptance & Support

The Autistic Self Advocacy Network seeks to advance the principles of the disability rights movement with regard to autism. ASAN believes that the goal of autism advocacy should be a world in which autistic people enjoy equal access, rights, and opportunities. We work to empower autistic people across the world to take control of our own lives and the future of our common community, and seek to organize the autistic community to ensure our voices are heard in the national conversation about us.

Homelessness Resources

Child Trends is the nation’s leading research organization focused exclusively on improving the lives of children and youth, especially those who are most vulnerable.

We work to ensure that all kids thrive by conducting independent research and partnering with practitioners and policymakers to apply that knowledge.

We believe that programs and policies that serve children are most effective when they are informed by data and evidence and grounded in deep knowledge of child and youth development.

Changing The Future For Homeless Youth

Our Promise —Empowering Homeless Working Families to Become Self-sufficient

Low wages and a lack of affordable housing is a disastrous combination that is driving family homelessness. Family Promise is the only organization in Bergen County solely dedicated to providing shelter and support to working families who become homeless. Since 1986, we have sheltered thousands of adults and children, adapting to their changing needs by creating programs to help them reach their goal of true independence.

You need help, not judgement.

Addiction  affects many of us, but stigma makes it even harder to ask for help  when we need it. Just Love More offers support without judgment. No one  knows what you need better than you, so we help you make your own  choices about recovery, then support you in creating a plan to get  there.

NHLC is the only national organization dedicated solely to using the power of the law to end and prevent homelessness and to protect the rights of people experiencing homelessness.

Victims of human trafficking can be anyone, regardless of race, gender, country of origin, or age. However,
some people are more vulnerable than others. In general, people who fit these categories are more likely to be victims of human trafficking.

Young people who may be more generally vulnerable or have a more challenging time speaking up for themselves.

People who are already on the run. Often, people do not note when runaways disappear since they may already have dropped off the radar.

Homeless individuals who may not have set routines or who may not have a safe place.

People who otherwise do not have access to the resources they need to protect themselves, including the ability to make a phone call or access to food and water. Sometimes, people end up involved in human trafficking as they seek better resources for themselves or their children, and they may feel pressured to remain because they do not think they have the resources to survive along.
