  • Not only will this center let others know my adult son exists in their community, the raised awareness would help keep him safe in the community while living independently. What a beautiful thing!  Moms always want their children safe, no matter what age.

  • Just like every loving parent, I want a good life for my children. Knoxville needs a place for families, local businesses, and the community to come together to make our town more accessible for those with autism.

  • Our family benefits from having workshops and activities designed for children with autism spectrum disorders. It is challenging to find appropriate, fun things that we can all do together as a family elsewhere in the community.

  • I am excited to have an autism-friendly place where my family can share experiences with other Knoxville families. No parents should have to feel like they are alone.
