From the group:

Coney Island Autism Angels was founded by Anthony and Veronica Droz, parents of a child with autism. While raising their daughter, they came to the realization that there wasn’t much awareness about the autism spectrum within their community and adjacent neighborhoods.

It was evident, that at times, some couldn’t understand or relate. They decided to stay strong and become parents of action. With their enthusiasm, and the love for their daughter, they set upon to surmount all difficulties. Anthony and Veronica believe that awareness equals acceptance. The journey for the Droz’s family began with the birth of their daughter. However, their campaign to raise Awareness=Acceptance and to help the children in their community as a whole, has just begun.
