Founded by a passionate mom, ALL is a beacon of hope for young adults with autism and other intellectual or developmental disabilities (I/DD). They understand the challenges faced by this group as they become adults.

ALL offers a variety of programs to help young adults become more independent, develop social skills, and feel good about themselves. They teach life skills like budgeting and cooking, along with social skills for making friends and building relationships. ALL also works to make sure these young adults feel included in the community by hosting social events.

Financial limitations shouldn’t hold anyone back. ALL has creative fundraising and a dedicated board to ensure everyone can participate in their programs. Their goal is to empower young adults with autism to have a brighter future, filled with independence and purpose.

I am a sister to a brother with autism. I'm 29 he's 27. This is very real. And as a nurse I strongly encourage them to have their affairs in order with guardianship and a will for what will happen to him when they are gone

21 feels different as well.

Very true.

Yes totally!!!!

Lisa and her boys-2007

How It Started

The Concept

The concept of ALL was born out of a mother’s uncertainty of not knowing what would become of her 2 sons, both of whom have autism, when she was no longer here to care for them; a feeling echoed by many parents of adult children with autism. After extensive research for viable options for her boys, she recognized that options for safe and affordable housing for this vulnerable population in Arizona are virtually non-existent. That, compounded with high abuse rates for disabled adults and a significant increase in the prevalence of autism, validated her concerns. Though the concept began for young adults with autism, in honor of her boys, it includes young adults with autism and other I/DD.

Statistics Matter

Why We Do What We Do

Community Partners

Data Matters

Independent Community Starting Point

Adults with autism and other intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DD) face a critical shortage of housing options and access to supports they need to thrive. To drive future planning, funding and significant advancements in public policy a comprehensive market analysis of the needs and preferences of individuals with autism and/or IDD is critical. Autism Life and Living is proud to have been part of the Market Advisory Council for the Greater Phoenix Housing Market Analysis.

Trisector Advisory Council

The analysis involved collecting data, identifying barriers to meeting housing demand and developing ways the public, private, nonprofit and philanthropic sectors can work together to prevent the displacement or homelessness of this vulnerable population.  This groundbreaking analysis has the potential to positively and permanently impact public policy and funding streams.
