Autism Family Network Promotes New Safety LNK Program
The Autism Family Network (autismfamilynetwork.org) has assisted families with autism-related diagnoses in Lincoln since 2006. One of the most exciting new programs that they are offering is Safety LNK. In a collaboration between the Lincoln Police Department, and the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office, Safety LNK will provide resources for people with autism who wander.
Advocacy Partnership is a collaborative endeavor between partner agencies Arc of Lincoln and Autism Family Network. The goal of the umbrella organization is to share resources and staff, and to work to protect shared interests. The Arc of Lincoln has advocated for the rights of persons with developmental and/or intellectual disabilities since 1952. They empower people and their families to protect their rights and interests, while enriching the quality of their lives. One of the unique services they offer is advocacy support at Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) and Individual Support Plans (ISPs).
