Autism Empowerment is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization devoted to enriching and empowering the lives of youth, adults and families within the Autism community. We promote a culture of Autism Acceptance and believe every one of us has gifts to share with the world.
The vision we work toward is an inclusive society that respects youth and adults on the autism spectrum, empowering each person to reach their highest potential. We offer innovative and inspiring programs, training and services and opportunities for leadership and volunteerism for those within and supporting the Autism and Asperger community.
We serve all ages and abilities and each of our programs and services promote Four Foundational Pillars of Positivity:
Accept – Enrich – Inspire – Empower
We appreciate you taking the time to visit the Autism Empowerment website. We are a positive organization that focuses on individual, family and community education, outreach and support. Everyone on our Board of Directors is on the autism spectrum or closely related to someone who is. As proactive autism allies, we believe each one of us is an Ambassador for Acceptance of All Abilities in our home, in our family, in our community, and in the world.
Our home base is in Vancouver, Washington where our community outreach programs serve the Southwest WA and Portland, Oregon metro area. Our multimedia programs such as Spectrums Magazine and Autism Empowerment Radio have a much greater reach. We believe in creating an Autism Empowerment community where all people on the autism spectrum and those supporting them feel welcome. All ages, all abilities. All are accepted and welcome here. ~ Autism is our journey. We’ll meet you along the way.
