Who We Are
The Charlottesville Region Autism Action Group (CRAAG) began in 2010 in collaboration with CA Human Services. CRAAG's mission is to raise awareness and enhance the quality of life for people with autism, developmental disabilities, and their families. They are a volunteer action group for families, self-advocates, and professionals who are interested in all age groups and levels of need. The daily concerns of CRAAG's active volunteers inform the focus on the needs of students transitioning out of high school, adults throughout the lifespan, and their families. Their advocacy is person-centered aimed at maximizing independent living with supports; meaningful employment; social connectivity; and community engagement.
