We are a parent driven initiative that has been established by a group of parents and caregivers to fill a need in our community:
The mission of P.L.A.Y.S. is to provide youth with Autism and their families who live in North Bay and Area with equal opportunities to participate in activities and programs by providing group respite funding and by developing new programs that best suits their needs.
We are also dedicated to provide Autism Awareness in our community about the issues that meet these families on a daily basis.
