In honor of our son Jacob,

we started a non-profit for Tampa Bay area families of children on the Autistic Spectrum. Our goal is to fund therapy services, doctor visits and education expenses for as many deserving families as we can every year. We know how large the costs are associated with raising a child on the spectrum. We have been very fortunate to have the financial means as well as family to help us with Jacob and the ever increasing costs for therapies, doctors and education. So, we want to give back to our community and help other families that truly need the assistance.

Thank you for all your love and support,

Howie and Kimmie Fine
