Because much of the ALEC training for First Responders has had to come to a stop, we have focused on virtual training and support of our law enforcment and emergency personnel partners. We would like to focus this report on our biggest donor and partner of the ALEC program, Bailey's Team for Autism.
Bailey's Team is a regional non-profit organization supporting organizations and individuals who fund research and or provide training, resources, services and aid to individuals living with autism spectrum disorders and their families.
For years, local foundation, Bailey's Team for Autism has supported the Autism Law Enforcement and Education Coalition with small grants to provide our training to First Responders. In 2020, Bailey's Team awarded ALEC with a grant to specifically support training of thousands of First Responders in Rhode Island. Recently, Bailey's Team awarded ALEC with another $7,000 grant for 2021. This award was made despite the cancellation of many of the foundations' fundraising events during the COVID 19 pandemic.
Bailey's Team is a strong partner of Lifeworks and is supporting many of our families directly with funding through an additional grant in response to the COVID crisis. To learn more about Bailey's Team and to read about how this Team is having an impact globally, please see their website:
