Autism Friendly Business Initiative

The Autism Friendly Business Initiative focuses on encouraging and training local businesses in the area of Autism Awareness, Acceptance, and Appreciation. The vision is to see our community become not only welcoming to individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), but where those individuals can become valued, participating members.

The Autism Friendly Business Initiative is a unique collaboration of parents, professionals, and community members who provide quality support and training that is accessible to all businesses to create a platform for Autism awareness. Park is proud to be the FIRST financial institution to reach level 1, and one of the FIRST businesses to reach level 2.

What does level 2 entail?

  • Trained staff at all branch locations to help provide service to members with ASD
  • All branch locations are equipped with sensory boxes (Available upon request)
  • Quiet down space is available
  • Collaborations with FEAT to better serve our ASD Members

Latest News

Along with celebrating reaching level 2, we are also celebrating that April is Autism Awareness Month, namely that April 2nd is Autism Awareness Day. Because of this, beginning on Friday, March 30, and ending on Monday, April 6, our headquarters will be lit up with blue lights to commemorate this year’s motto of ‘Light it Up Blue’ to bring further awareness to Autism Awareness. You can read more about it in our press release.

During the month of April, you can stop by any branch location and purchase a bracelet to help raise funds for the FEAT organization. The bracelets cost $1 each and members who donate can sign a Champion Card, which will be displayed at the branch.
