This is the dream of a group of Parents/Grandparents who either have adult children with Autism or other developmental diagnosis and the professionals who work with them. Our mission is to create a safe and sustainable housing project and services that will allow our community to live independently in a safe and welcoming environment; where our residents will have access to state-of-the-art training facilities in culinary and farm sustainability; they will be given the opportunity to live and learn alongside neurotypical individuals in order to facilitate equity, diversity and inclusion with the greater community.

According to the CDC, there's a population of around 702,000 Autistic adults in California alone. It is imperative that we begin to help them plan for their futures, especially when parents are no longer able to care for them.

Because Autism is a spectrum disorder our model is one that reflects the unique needs of the individual. We envision a housing community built with sensory issues in mind, and an engaging social atmosphere for those who prefer to live by themselves or with a roommate of their choosing.

We are currently working with agencies in Shasta, Lake and Mendocino Counties to fulfill the first phase of this project. Our village will include access to a self-sustaining farm, vegetable gardens and a commercial kitchen. Residents will have the opportunity to learn valuable life skills on these or other job training and life skills projects both on and off site.
