We are proud the AFIRE organization has been in the community of Pinellas County since its formation in 1984. During that time, the members have constantly achieved the mission statement by enhancing the lives of persons with intellectual disabilities. Hundreds of families have been touched through the efforts of AFIRE.

There are several ways to support AFIRE.
