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.
Here With Us has partnered with The Butler Center at the SJCC to create an Art Program. Individuals participate in a variety of art projects thru detailed instruction. Open to all people on and off the spectrum. The Butler Center at the SJCC
Here With Us approached the Adler Center at the Mid Island JCC to develop a summer travel program for post 21 age individuals. It is our mindset that young adults should have the opportunity to enjoy summer as all others do. The idea was embraced and quickly implemented for the upcoming summer of 2020. Participants will enjoy outings to various establishments. Adler Center at the Mid Island JCC
