Cooking Autism, Inc.

Cooking Autism is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation that services the Rappahannock area in Virginia. Our mission is to help provide important life-skills programs to autistic children and adults so that they can gain confidence, independence, and build a strong foundation of skills; communication, fine motor skills, advocating, giving and following instructions, collaboration, and independent living skills. We are excited to be working with schools, churches, support groups, and local charities, to reach our neurodiverse community. Currently we are providing over 586 local community members with year-long programs so that they can sharpen and retain these important skills. Our programs are solely funded through the donations from churches, businesses, and generous community members like yourself. Thank you for helping us as we help our community members grow!

Micah Ministries

Micah Ecumenical Ministries is a collaboration of churches that cares for our community’s homeless neighbors, addressing not just physical needs but relational and spiritual needs, as well. With Micah’s help, homeless neighbors identify pathways to sustainable permanent housing, access meaningful relationships, meet basic needs like food and clothing, have a place to stay when they are sick or dying, find sustainable employment and income, and a myriad of other support services. Micah serves in response to God’s call to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with God in all of our ministries. Support for Micah helps neighbors find a home in the Fredericksburg region. We can be a community where no one has to sleep outside. Click here to visit their website.
