Carlos Vieira Foundation

The Carlos Vieira Foundation is located in the heart of Central California. The Foundation was built on one man’s dream of helping children and families within our local community. The Carlos Vieira Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that focuses primarily on assisting autistic children within Central California. Through local support the Foundation is able not only to assist families facing autism but fight the war on drugs, as well as other major causes including children diagnosed with cancer. The Carlos Vieira Foundation offers its services and raises money for multiple organizations and causes that directly assist people in need.

It is our hope that our actions will help to empower children, individuals and families to achieve lifelong successes and improve their overall health, wellbeing and quality of life.
