Dubuque Autism Network is a nonprofit corporation dedicated to helping families of children with autism and special needs to find resources. Dubuque Autism Network will also actively be seeking financial support to help fund these services for families and schools.
Dubuque lies at the junction of three states: Iowa, Illinois, and Wisconsin, a region locally known as the Tri-State Area. It serves as the main commercial, industrial, educational, and cultural center for the area. Geographically, it is part of the Driftless Area, a portion of North America that escaped all three phases of the Wisconsinian Glaciation.

One of the few large cities in Iowa with hills, it is a major tourist destination, attracting visitors to the city's unique architecture and river location. Also, it is home to five institutions of higher education, making it a center for culture and learning.
