ALL serves youth & young adults 13 and older

ALL's Strive 365 Well-Being Program

Individuals with autism and IDD face many barriers to accessing support services and education needed to live a healthy independent life. Autism Life and Living's Well-Being Program takes a unique and holistic approach to eliminating these barriers by addressing our members physical, emotional, social and psychological components of health. Activities are aimed at strengthening such individual, environmental and social resources inclusive of psychological assets and skills essential for well-being. Our goal is to empower these individuals to increase their life chances, take control over, and improve their health and ultimately their overall well-being. Living with a disability does not have to be a social determinant of health and well-being. See program categories below for details.

ALL's Oak Tree Ranch Community

The Crisis

It Takes a Village

Many parents are aging and ailing and are very concerned where their disabled adult children will live. Unfortunately, there are significant gaps in supports and services for independent living options.

Current options in Arizona are either expensive communities tailored to high functioning individuals or state run group homes. State run group homes are not an option many parents will choose as they come with extraordinarily high unsubstantiated abuse rates, no regard for resident compatibility or choice. This leaves parents, such as myself, having to create a solution. A solution that comes with many barriers. To develop an independent living community that is safe, supported and affordable will take a village. ALL is actively seeking individuals with varying expertise to join our village. We are in need of; driven parents determined to secure a solution, developers, architects, legal experts and anyone with a strong desire to make a measurable impact.

The Solution

Oak Tree Ranch

Autism Life and Living’s Oak Tree Ranch Independent Living Community is set to meet a tremendous need for an underserved population. As the first of its kind, this project marks a groundbreaking effort to create a specialized housing solution for adults with autism and related needs. It will address the shortcomings present in other alternatives.

Recognizing the critical need for long-term housing solutions for adults with autism and related intellectual/developmental disabilities (IDD), the organization has embarked on the development of a 31-unit community that offers a unique blend of specialized housing, community inclusivity, safety features, environmental sustainability, affordability, and programs promoting independence.

Emphasizing inclusivity, the community will house both neurodiverse and neurotypical individuals, fostering a cooperative spirit within a shared living space.
