EFA Joins ACT Today!Print This Post Oct 24th, 2011 | By lisa | Category: Announcements
Major League All-Star Pitcher, Eddie Guardado and his wife Lisa established The Eddie Guardado Foundation, a non-profit 501 (c)(3) in 2008 after their youngest child, Ava, was diagnosed with autism. Lisa and Eddie understand the emotional and financial hardships families impacted with autism experience and founded the Eddie Guardado Foundation to help other families receive access to therapy and treatments that they could not otherwise afford.
In January 2011, The Eddie Guardado Foundation merged with ACT Today!, (Autism Care and Treatment Today!) as both non-profits share the mission of providing awareness of and access to effective therapies for children with autism.
Meeting the needs of many as being a top priority, EGF and ACT Today! are able to more efficiently address the needs of children with autism. The organizations continue to collaborate together with Eddie and Lisa serving on the ACT Today! Board of Directors.
