The Adonis Autism board of directors has decided the time has come to close Adonis as a nonprofit to focus our energies on other projects. In an effort to give back and bring the greatest benefit to the community we will be distributing grants to local organizations we see as key to creating a future for persons with disabilities .
We want to take this opportunity to thank the many people who have helped us over the years. From the businesses and organizations that have generously given financial support to our projects to the many people who have given their time and expertise as volunteers and board members.
Thank you. Nothing happens without you.
Who We Are
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 envision a world that provides lasting security and opportunities for families affected by autism. We want to create an environment where families can join in with other families in the community for emotional and social support.
Our mission is to provide programs that enhance the lives of people with autism and their families. We also want to inform the community of all relevant programs of other groups in the community that can further our vision.
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 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.
