29 Acres is a non-profit organization providing support services & independent living opportunities to adults with autism in Denton and Collin County. Employment is not only a source of income, but it provides a sense of purpose and engagement. The greatest barrier to employment, however, is getting to their job. Most adults with autism do not drive and there are few, affordable and reliable transportation options in North Texas. The cost of getting to work can be very high using options like Uber and Lyft. In conjunction with working with our local, state and federal authorities to broaden services, we are launching a volunteer driving team to help with this immediate need.
