Autism has been called the "hidden epidemic"...the nation's fastest growing, serious developmental disorder. Government studies estimate one in every 68 children--five times more likely to strike boys (one in 42) than girls (one in 189)--are diagnosed with autism. It is more common than Down Syndrome. It afflicts more children than cancer. No one knows its cause and no one has a cure. What happens to these children when they become adults?

Autism grows up
Individuals with autism have a normal lifespan. Many are unable to communicate effectively or socialize comfortably. They frequently exhibit abnormally repetitive behavior. They can be withdrawn and, while almost never violent toward others, can be destructive toward themselves and their environment. They need loving care, and their families desperately need support in order to cope.

The number of adults with autism will rise significantly over the next two decades, as the large group of recenlty diagnosed children with autism age. Correspondingly, autism in adulthood is an issue of increasing concern. The critical shortage of serices for adults with autism is a daily struggle for thousands of families who seek to provide a mainstream adult life for their loved ones living with autism

Few resources - state, federal or private - exist to help. Homes for Autism is working to fill that need, and you can help. You can help us continue to be the brightest hope for those impacted by autism. You can help with your energy and financial support. Our only support comes from those like you who see an opportunity to make a difference and decide to do it.
