Resources For Families

 

The goal of the Doug Flutie, Jr. Foundation for Autism is to help families affected by autism live life to the fullest. Through our programs and partnerships, we help families get access to services; lead more active lifestyles; and grow toward adult independence. Our Foundation supports many programs and partners with like-minded organizations to directly help families affected by autism. We also create opportunities to bring families together from all over to build a community of support. Our three priorities are below.

Adult Independence

We realize the need for community based services for our adult community including skills training, jobs, housing, transportation and health care delivery.  Our newest initiative, Flutie Spectrum Enterprises, will create businesses to employ adults with autism.
