Axes Gives Back: Autism Foundation

Axes Physical Therapy Foundation in St. Louis, MO supports the Autism Foundation through "Wear Jeans, Change Lives."

Advocate. Educate. Love. Accept. 

Axes is a small, locally owned and operated physical therapy company serving our communities in the Greater St. Louis Missouri and Illinois area. We’re fortunate to be able to offer our services at 20 locations, with the mission to help as many people as possible. Our profession is all about helping others and giving back. Through the service of physical and occupational therapy, we give our patients’ their livelihoods, lifestyles, and abilities back. Since giving back is the fundamental reason that our organization exists, it was important to the ownership and staff of Axes Physical Therapy to make sure that we are doing all that we can to give back to the communities we love.

In early 2022, Axes launched the Axes Physical Therapy Foundation to take our giving to the next level. Each month, Axes partners with a local, staff nominated charitable organizations to donate food, goods, clothes, and funds through our “Wear Jeans, Change Lives” initiative. Employees of Axes contribute to a St. Louis area charitable cause by automatic payroll deduction, this money goes into the Axes Foundation, and our employees get to wear jeans to work on Fridays. With these moneys, Axes supported Childrens’ Medical Mission West in January ’24, Stray Rescue of St. Louis in February ’24,The BackStoppers, Inc in March ’24, and now, the Autism Foundation in April ’24!

For the month of April, recognized nationally as Autism Awareness Month, Axes will support for the Autism Foundation’s life-changing programs. The following represents the assistance provided by the Autism Foundation:

  • Sensory-Sensitive Spaces: Creating environments where individuals with autism can feel safe and comfortable.
  • Educational Workshops: Providing training and resources to families and educators, fostering a supportive community.
  • Vocational Support: Empowering young adults with autism through job training and employment opportunities, ensuring a path to independence.
  • Research and Advocacy: Supporting studies that seek to improve the quality of life for those with autism while advocating for policy that protects their rights and dignity.

The profound impact of the Autism Foundation resonates with our belief in the power of community and the importance of extending a helping hand. We understand the extraordinary challenges faced by families touched by autism, and we stand firm in our commitment to champion their cause.
