What’s your favorite way to spend a few hours?
Gym and Swim? Nature Walk? Art Projects? Cooking? Community Service? Our programs and activities are constantly evolving to meet family interests and preferences.
An annual membership fee of $100 helps cover some of the cost for our program leaders and facility rentals.
There is no other 'per program fee' thanks to support from our volunteers, funding partners and donors.
There are no support staff. Family/caregivers attend and participate alongside our adult with autism because they know best when, if, and what kind of support is needed.
Care to join us? Connect by phone or email for more information and to book your introductory visit.
