With the core belief that each child has unique abilities and gifts to share with the world, Micah’s Voice provides hope and inspiration to families dealing with a diagnosis of autism. Through programs that provide education, awareness, support and financial assistance for those in greatest need, Micah’s Voice empowers families and gives a voice to these special children, so that they can enjoy the best quality of life possible.
We are learning how to live hopeful and happy lives one day at a time. Our goal is to help as many families live with that same purpose. We hope you will share your voice and smile along with us.
Micah’s Voice, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, was established by Shawn (Boyz II Men) and Sharhonda Stockman to help provide community, hope and financial resources for families affected by autism.
Although research is very important, Micah’s Voice is focused on the present situation and has a deep concern for families dealing with autism. One of the Stockman’s twin sons, Micah, was diagnosed with autism at an early age and they realize the financial burden families are experiencing. Micah’s Voice is looking to help support these families.
