GACA is a Not-for-Profit (NFP) 501(c)3 organization created to help families with children with Autism through their formative years.

Social skills are often a challenge for these kids and golf is a wonderful way to gather kids and families together to participate in a sport they can succeed and grow through. Our mission statement is as follows:
The GACA NFP organization is committed and dedicated to children with autism. The vision of the organization is to support parents and their child with autism in developing their life and social skills to a level of independence. Golf will be the vehicle for facilitating this journey. The organization will provide parents with an outlet for their child to show achievement, acquire social skills, and feel a integral part of society.
Additionally, the organization will team with professionals in the field of autism to provide pro bono or low cost social services to lower income families. Educational training for college students in the field will also be promoted.
