The Dan Marino Foundation was created in 1992 by Dan and Claire Marino, when their son, Michael, was diagnosed with autism. Today, 3.5 million Americans have autism. For over 28 years, the Foundation has led innovation with the mission to "empower individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities." Embracing the potential of the people we serve, the Foundation has raised over $80 million to create and support unique and impactful initiatives including Nicklaus Children's Hospital Dan Marino Outpatient Center, Marino Autism Research Institute, Marino Adapted Aquatics, and Marino Campus post-secondary schools in Broward and Miami-Dade Counties. Working to reduce over 80% unemployment for these individuals, the Foundation is creating award-winning technologies like the Virtual Interactive Training Agent for job interviewing using avatars and Marino Virtual Learning offering online courses focused on social competency, independent living, and gainful employment.
