Ausome Foundation was created to empower and provide individuals in the Autism Spectrum and their families with the tools to become the best version of themselves.
Creating a world where being diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) doesn’t define your value or talents
Ausome Foundation has worked with local organizations to create better opportunities for individuals on the Autism Spectrum and their families. Thanks to our partners, sponsors, and donors, we have been able to provide inclusive, fun, and beneficial events such as Kids Fest & Parent Training, Healthcare & Wellness Resource Fair, Therapist Training Sessions, Cultural Festivals, Toy Drives, etc., giving our community a chance to enjoy, learn, and feel empowered! We also have had the privilege to award more than 40 scholarships to students that need specialized education, yet their families couldn’t afford it. In addition, we have helped low-income families cover the costs of the evaluation necessary to receive therapy, and through the grants, we have received, we have started innovative programs of music, art, and occupational therapy.
Although we have a long way to go when it comes to providing the best tools and support for all individuals on the autism spectrum, we work hard every day to innovate existing tools and provide the best resources to ensure that all Ausome Individuals have Awesome Opportunities!

The Ausome Foundation Corp. was established as a 501(c)(3) entity in 2021 by Gleyder Gonzalez. The inspiration of creating a foundation began shortly after the diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) of a close family member. This diagnosis was received 15 years ago after the recognition of various questionable developmental delays and the presence of maladaptive behaviors. At the time, the observation of the day to day obstacles that were real to the family such as lack of information, resources, guidance, assistance and acceptance were overwhelming. While other families with children the same age were scheduling playdates, their lives were consumed with therapy day after day, year after year.
