29 Friends

  • Did you know that having relationships has been shown to improve quality of life, make us happier and perhaps even live longer?
  • Did you know that a neuro-typical person has more than 150 important relationships in their life at any given time while a person with autism and/or an IDD has only 25 important relationships in their life at any given time?
  • Did you know that over 50% of adults with autism report feeling lonely?

THE DETAILS:

You must apply and become a member to participate.

We are inclusive of adults with autism (or related special abilities) ages 16+.

We will meet every Saturday or Sunday afternoon, depending on the event. Events will be posted on our 29 Friends Event’s Page.

The fees to attend events will be affordable and will run about $20-25 depending on the activity.

We will NOT be able to provide direct support to any member. So, if your loved one requires individualized support to be safe and successful in the community, YOU must provide that support.

We will NOT be able to provide transportation to the events.
