When & Where
Autism Unites is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) with the mission to help young adults with autism successfully integrate into their communities. They call their unique social and vocational integration model “Match A Friend” where they match young adults with autism to companions with compatible personalities and common interests. This companion becomes a trusted “friend” that provides the young adult with advocacy information, social skills support, and vocational training in authentic social and work environments. Autism Unites believes this inclusive integration model is the best way to promote understanding and acceptance of individuals with autism which builds communities that are nurturing, supporting, and positive for all.
