The Here With Us Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit foundation, started by two sisters, each having a son with autism, both who are young adults.
Our mission is to create or enhance any environment that will further the lives of young adults on the autism spectrum. We would like to see persons with autism living within their communities as any other individual. Whether that be a working environment or social environment. Our goal is to see these people side by side with all people. Accepted and respected.
We believe that those adults HERE WITH US should and will have a future that is full, with success and accomplishment.
Visit to the American Museum of Natural History
ON NOVEMBER 18TH, 55 of us visited the American Museum of Natural History in New York City! Here With Us chartered a bus to make the trip as easy and seamless as possible. As you can imagine, it is an undertaking to get everyone to the big city and back, exploring the vast halls of this incredible museum along the way. It is an honor to help enrich the lives of these young adults with autism. As you can tell by the pics, we had an amazing time!
HereWithUs Bronx Zoo Summer Travel Program
Here With Us partnered with Rise LIfe Services to create a Summer Travel Program. The first of many trips to come, we provided funding for entry while Rise LIfe Services provided transportation to the Bronx Zoo. The day was a huge success! We are planning new trips weekly and hope to continue this partnership year round. Next up is the Long Island Aquarium!
