Mimi’s Mission is a local 501c3 non-profit organization that has been helping Downriver families in need since 2015. The organization has evolved over the years and in 2021, our focus and mission are to aid Downriver families with autistic children. Through generous donations from businesses and individuals, Mimi’s Missions is often able to provide help and resources to families who have these children with special needs.  Our programs do not offer financial or monthly assistance, but instead give specific and often immediate assistance to these families.



Throughout each year, Mimi’s Mission runs programs geared at helping Downriver families. Our Autism Acceptance Group  program is a parent-driven support group for Downriver families with children on Autism spectrum and offers meetings, demonstrations, and activities twice a month and special events in the winter and fall. In addition, we also accept donations of food that children can easily prepare by themselves without use of a stove for our Blessings Box. headquarters for families who may need them. While those are the main on-going programs Mimi’s Mission presents, we add many more during the year including toy drives, children’s food drives, our popular Secret Santa holiday assistance program for Downriver families with a child with a special need or disability, and so many more.

Please take your time reviewing our site for a better understanding of what we do and ways you can help! We appreciate the generous and continued support of our Downriver community members with special needs children!

Mimi’s Mission is a 501c3 Non-Profit Organization that relies on the generous donations from business and residents to help Downriver families with a child on the Autism Spectrum. In recent years, the focus of Mimi’s Mission has been primarily to help families in our community with children with special needs or disabilities. Scott Bergeron and Don Lorincz along with Eric Sloan ran successful fundraisers for Mimi’s Mission in December of 2020! This will go to making sure our children with autism get the items they need to be their best. Thank you for your continued support of our mission: Taking the community under our wings!
