Justin's Story

The JUSTin Hope Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit that was started in 2011 by the parents of Justin Reitz. Justin was born in 2002, and was two years old when he was diagnosed with a neurodevelopmental disorder. His parents were overwhelmed with unanswered questions as they tried to figure out which path would be most helpful for their son. 

Through their personal experience, Justin’s parents understood there was a lack of resources and support available for families affected by neurodevelopmental disorders, including autism, in Northern Nevada. 

When a child is diagnosed with any neuro-developmental disorder, parents often tend to prioritize that child's needs above all else, sometimes without realizing the effect it has on their other children, their marriage, or themselves.

We know too well how stressful this can be on a family. JUSTin HOPE was founded by a group of dedicated individuals who believe that "a little bit of help gives a lot of hope." We want to help by providing awards as well as supports to families.  Our goal is to help individuals and families affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder and other neuro-developmental disorders by bridging the gap between what they can afford and what they need to live their lives to the fullest potential as individuals and as a family.

Let us know how we can help you.
