Serving the Greater New Orleans Autism Community


The New Blue Foundation was created in 2019 to provide a sustained advocacy and fundraising entity specifically for the autism community in the Greater New Orleans area. 

“New Blue” endeavors to bring needed and consistent programming and services to area families impacted by autism, as well as reinforcing proven initiatives capable of increasing qualified service providers to the area.
