To enhance quality of life for adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or other neurodiversities by planning, developing, and running an innovative and vibrant residential community. A-Town will support residents' needs and foster meaningful connections with the surrounding community, for the benefit of residents and community alike.
To help usher in a world where persons with ASD or other neurodiversities can receive the same attention, education, services, and opportunities to thrive as neurotypical persons.
For years, my husband and I agonized over how Luke would live once we are gone. This concern isn't unique to our family. The vast majority of adults with Autism or other neurodiversities live with aging parents who, year after year, become less able to provide for the needs of their loved ones. The choices for living independently with support simply are not readily available.
We founded A-Town in early 2021 along with my sister, Maria, with a vision to develop a special residential community that would offer residents an attractive, modern, and adaptive living experience.
