Mission Statement

Building bridges to independence for Arkansans with autism.

Description

Founded in February of 2017 by local autism advocates who want to make a direct impact on the autism community in Arkansas. Our mission is "Building Bridges to Independence for Arkansans with Autism." We look forward to helping individuals and families with autism across the lifespan and will collaborate with other local autism groups to provide autism friendly events, raising awareness about autism and providing important resources and support to families. Through funding of grants for innovative or already existing programs, we are committed to improving ease of access to therapy, promoting activities targeting development of social skills, opening doors to jobs or internships at local companies, supporting and encouraging local entrepreneurship, and possibly creating businesses that seek specifically to train and hire individuals with autism! We are committed to sponsoring relevant workshops and training opportunities for families as well as professionals, and would like to see more options for housing and support for independent living.
