Adonis Autism, Inc. is in its 30th year of service in southwest Florida. Adonis weaves together many different organizational experiences with autism and disabilities into one strong “rope” of advocacy for adults and families. We stand together because more can be accomplished together than alone. Our intention is to help families live in a world where parents of children with autism are not desperate and hopeless about their future and that of their loved ones.
We look forward to a world that provides lasting security for families with autism. Our vision is of a community of families with children with disabilities living together in a supportive, caring, and affordable environment.
Create a safe, affordable, financially sustainable long-term residential cohousing community providing meaningful work, recreation, education, and training for individuals with disabilities and their families. Including supported living apartments that could also provide living space for caregivers
We invite a diverse group of individuals, their families, and supporting organizations who identify with our vision. Join with us in creating and implementing our strategic plan for an economically independent future.
- We believe there is a need for more support and structure for adult children with autism and their families than the state can be relied upon to provide.
- We believe that the best, most efficient and effective way to support the adult with a disability is to support the entire family. After all, these are the people most interested in and committed to the well being of the individual. We do that by providing affordable flexible housing options for the entire family in a close knit community.
- We believe that only by keeping the family unit together can we create an affordable long term care solution for adults with disabilities.
- We believe that by organizing ourselves and working together to create a co-housing community that is integrated and supportive like the small towns and villages of an earlier time, we will be better able to help each other and our adult children with autism.
