Our Vision is to have…

MEANINGFUL CHOICES FOR ADULTS WITH AUTISM/IDD WHEREVER THEY LIVE, LEARN, EARN, PLAY & PRAY

 

THREE KEY FACTORS ARE REQUIRED FOR ADULTS WITH AUTISM/IDD TO ACHIEVE THEIR LIFE GOALS:

  1. The presence of adequate community agency support
  2. The acceptance of people with disabilities by the general population in the community (including policies, laws, and attitudes)
  3. The availability of financial resources to ensure that people with Autism/IDD can access a reasonable standard of living enjoyed by other members of the community

The Power of the Dream focuses on Advocacy (#2) and Employment (#3)
