Join Our Newsletter

A community of families of teens and young adults on the autism spectrum where self-advocacy and independence are promoted and encouraged.

We have a great group of autistic adults who mentor our youth and a variety of professionals who generously share their time and expertise. Monthly meetings to explore transition issues, as well as social events in the community, provide opportunities for parents and youth to establish a community of support. Join us as we learn about transition, share our experiences, celebrate our successes and support each other on the journey to independence.

  • Browse our Facebook page for additional information and community events! Job fairs, apprenticeships, career exploration, job shadowing and other employment-related opportunities are listed every week.
  • Check out our Calendar to discover what we have planned.
  • GPS (Guide to Public Services) – Let us guide you to the services you need and even help you through the application process.

We can help answer questions about:  AHCCCS, Employment, DDD, SNAP Benefits (Food Stamps), Housing, Transportation, SSI/SSDI, Vocational Training, Social Activities, Therapies, Empowerment Scholarships and more!
