ACT Today (Autism Care & Treatment Today) is a national non-profit organization whose mission is to raise awareness and provide treatment services to families. One of these areas is supporting military families as they recognize the extraordinary challenges military families’ experience (one for their country, the other for their children). ACT today for military families is dedicated to fund and assist military families impacted by Autism by providing financial assistance to families to help defray out-of-pocket costs associated with Autism treatments and for other qualify programs.

As a military provider, Kara Dodds and Associates is also a financial contributor and donator to ACT today for military families in our community.
