Thank You!

Our First Water Lantern Celebration Was A Heartwarming Success!

Thank you for adding your light to our Water Lantern Celebration. Together, we celebrated as an inclusive community with music, food, creativity and a whole lot of heart. It was a beautiful and moving evening, and we could not have done it without you!  Our mission is to light the way for young adults with autism and intellectual and developmental disabilities by providing employment experience, social gatherings and belonging.
