Where Adults with Autism Live and Thrive.


Our Mission

Autism Communities’ mission is to provide homes that facilitate an independent, safe, and inclusive living environment for adults with autism.

Quality of Life Begins at Home

Our goal is to provide adults with autism a home of their own in a vibrant community setting. Hear from parents who are uniting in support for Autism Communities.

It Began with One Parent

“From the day my two sons were diagnosed, I worried about how they would be cared for when I no longer can. Like all parents, I want them to have the best life possible. Most importantly, I want them to have a place to call home in a community that knows them and welcomes them.”
