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.
