ADVOCATING FOR ADULTS WITH AUTISM AND THEIR FAMILIES
To promote, model and advocate for the full inclusion of adults with autism and their families in the life of our communities; and to expand choice and opportunity in housing, employment, and social participation.
JOIN OUR MOVEMENT
Due to decades of powerful advocacy efforts, our nation invests generously in childhood development and learning for those with autism.
But when these children turn 21, they lose access to accommodations that have enabled them to thrive and participate in community life.
That’s why Madison House is marshaling Autism After 21, a powerful new movement that focuses national attention specifically on the wellbeing of adults on the spectrum.
Housing is a key social determinant of health and wellbeing. Our housing initiatives expand choice and opportunity for adults with autism in communities across the country.
Madison Fields is a neuro-inclusive, community-powered agricultural and equine resource center where people of all ability access opportunities to participate, learn, and grow together.
The Autism After 21 Utah Project
In this exciting pilot project, we are working with autistic adults, families, policymakers, and partnering organizations across Utah to collect data, implement replicable strategies, and track outcomes toward building inclusive communities.
