Narrative

One of the most daunting challenges for many families is finding the right place for their adult sons and daughters with autism to call home. From navigating eligibility for adult services to choosing the best situation for a loved one and transitioning to new care providers, the process can be overwhelming. Advocates’ approach is to partner with families to help them identify their own vision, access resources, and implement the supports needed to bring that vision to life.

We offer 24-hour staffed group homes specializing in autism, as well as Shared Living, Adult Family Care, and in-home support for families caring for their sons or daughters at home. When existing programs and models do not fit the needs and goals of an individual or family, we are eager to think outside of the box to create a customized solution with families.
