Autism Works for the Community – Coming in 2019!

Autism Pensacola is excited to begin a new vocational program for people with disabilities, Autism Works for the Community, thanks to a grant provided by The Able Trust Foundation.

The aim of Autism Works for the Community is to create a well-networked and successful program that specifically focuses on those with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) that can give leverage to the alarmingly low numbers of ASD employment. Only 21 percent of people with disabilities are active within the labor force, leaving two-thirds of young people with autism without a job or any plans after high school. Autism Works for the Community will eventually build a cross-sector network of businesses representing the growing Northwest Florida industries who employ people with disabilities.
