The Doug Flutie, Jr. Foundation offers grants to families in crisis. These grants are not given directly to the individual families. Instead, they are distributed among certain focus areas in the following regions: New Jersey, New England, New York and parts of Canada. The money is distributed to organizations that provide services for families in need in these regions. The Laurie Flutie Computer Initiative is a program that offers computers to disadvantaged families with children who have autistic disorder. The initiative also delivers computers to certain school districts as well.
