Board Chair Statement
I am Bishop Dr. Anthony Webster, a volunteer and Board member for the Halle Martin Foundation, Inc.. I proudly joined this organization because it is a proactive supporter of autism, and provides the big voice we need in educating our community about what autism is and is not, what can be done about it, and why we should ALL care about it.  The Halle Martin Foundation, Inc. is helping families and individuals connect with the services they need and with each other, so that we can know we are not crazy, we are not alone, we are not powerless. 

It gives me great hope to know that the Halle Martin Foundation is already changing lives for kids in Leon and surrounding counties here in Florida. The  effort put forth by the Halle Martin Foundation is already producing new hope, the awareness programs are working, and the demonstration of our volunteer involvement is empowering for all of us. It is my hope that the next generation of families will not have to go through the kind of confusion, frustration, and hopelessness that this one is facing, and that ultimately we won’t need to do this work any longer. My wife Joyce and I have a special kid, and have experienced many of the parental challenges that exist in this community.
That’s why I do what I do. I believe in the Halle Martin Foundation, and I hope others will join me in supporting this cause.
Sincerely,
Bishop Dr. Anthony Webster

CEO Statement/Executive Director Statement

Philippians 4:13:  “I Can Do All Things Through Christ Who Strengthens Me”

The Halle Martin Foundation, Inc. was founded and created to meet a need in the community in which I live, and to help create more awareness of Autism and Autistic Spectrum Disorders. The Foundation was also created to help support children and families in their efforts to have a better “quality of life”.
 
What does it mean to raise a child with Autism? How does this affect a family unit? What help can I receive? In short, what do I do? These were the questions that I asked myself, and I’m sure other parents and families asked the same questions. My daughter was four years old when she was diagnosed with Autism, and I knew then that my life would never be the same… I, and I’m sure like many other families, tried to find a quick fix, quick cure, diet regimens, and a variety of medications in the hopes that they would somehow instantly cure my daughter. After my pity parties, crying spells, self-denial, and occasional depressive moments, I quickly learned that I had to stand strong, and depend on my spiritual faith!
At the time of my daughter’s diagnosis, I was working full-time and raising a family…keep in mind also that I was raising a child with Autism! I remember being overwhelmed by the amount of doctors and specialists that my daughter had to see….and I said to myself this is what I have to do in order for my daughter to survive! This is what I have to do in order to have a better quality of life for my family!

This was a defining moment for me, because from then on I asked a lot of questions from her pediatrician, neurologist, geneticist, therapists, etc. and began getting involved in my daughter’s success. It was through these trials and tribulations that I begin to tell my story of how my family lives on a daily basis. Raising a child on the Autism Spectrum is a 24 hour, 7 days a week job! Let’s face it, it’s a way of life until there is a known cure….

Because Autism is a neurological disorder that affects a child’s social, emotional and cognitive developmental growth, the behaviors will vary from mild to severe depending on the child. My daughter’s behaviors are sometimes mild…and sometimes severe. Then there’s the potty training (which we are still going through), and there’s the different eating styles (which we are still going through), and then there’s different sleeping patterns, and then there different temper tantrums…. So as you can see, raising a child on the spectrum is NO EASY Task! However, with faith, hope, and love our families can live a happy, healthy lifestyle!
