Mission: Formed in 2004, AMOC strives to support families who cope with Autism and related disorders. These families face their struggle often in isolation and at great personal hardship. AMOC aims to raise public awareness of Autism through seminars and media campaigns in
Orange County. AMOC works to provide information and networks to help empower families and the community, so that we can better address the unique and troubling challenges of this health problem. AMOC also aims to raise understanding and tolerance in
Orange County. We advocate for those people, often voiceless, who might act or look different, who should be respected, and loved for whom they (or we) are.
