Sophia's Gift

Autism Society of Mahoning Valley addresses the pressing concerns of special needs parents through the Sophia’s Gift Project, supporting financial, legal, and end-of-life planning. Inspired by a local single dad’s struggle, the project offers free family workshops led by attorneys each fall, guiding parents on STABLE accounts, legal guardianship, and setting up trusts. The Sophia’s Gift Family Planning Grant provides life planning at no or reduced cost. Funded by a successful Wine & Chocolate Dinner, the Sophia’s Gift Emergency Fund launches in Summer 2025, offering immediate assistance for catastrophic needs.
