FINDING A PATH TO INDEPENDENCE Over the next 10 years, 500,000 Americans with autism will cross into adulthood. 85% of them lack adequate employment opportunities. Their voices must be heard.

ACRES is Listening.


Your gift will directly support ACRES Project's programs & events that match the passions and skills of individuals with autism.



Our programs are created with the input of adults with autism, for adults with autism.



ACRES strives to increase autism awareness and acceptance throughout our community.

Dare To Care

As the number of individuals diagnosed with autism and related disorders continues to increase, we cannot continue to assume that someone is doing something about finding a solution. ACRES Project has taken up the challenge to make something happen now. How can you help?
