Ishan’s Advocates - seeks to have a team of advocates available to help families,

free of charge, to navigate the complex and often frustrating journey involving the
public school districts, regional centers and private health insurance companies. Our
advocates will be available to attend IEP meetings, liaison with Insurance
Companies, and identify and facilitate therapies, etc. These advocates will walk this

journey with them so that no child falls through the cracks.

Ishan’s Friends - offering day programs and camps in partnership with Carousel Dance Studio, as well a village of trained caregivers available to families on short notice for

short term care. Parent’s of children with special needs often find it difficult to go to an appointment, or take care of necessary responsibilities. The caregivers can provide

families with childcare support to make meeting these responsibilities possible. In

addition, the caregiver can provide support for family outings or support in social

situations such as birthday parties, team sports practices, enrichment classes, Sunday school programs, etc. This much needed service provides families with a healthier, less stressful and more balanced life which is very difficult for these families to achieve.

Our Grants Program

Our Grants Program

Kick For A Cause

Kick For A Cause

The Kick for a Cause challenge involves individuals performing a creative kick on video(either alone or in small groups), posting that video to social media, making a donation to The Ishan Foundation, then nominating three others to do the same, all in an effort to raise money for The Ishan Foundation.



Kickline is a multi-city dance extravaganza modeled after Hands Across America, but we’re not merely holding hands. This time, in cities across the country, donors will be participating in a Broadway style kick line, kicking their heels up to raise funds for The Ishan Foundation! Who doesn't want to be in a kick line? From children to seniors, locking arms and kicking up a storm to raise money to enrich the lives of children and adults living with autism and neurological and mental disorders will be an uplifting endeavor.

Coming soon in 2020 in a major city near you…..
