Autism Empowerment is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization devoted to enriching and empowering the lives of children, teens, adults, and families in the Autism and Asperger community. We serve all ages and abilities and promote Four Foundational Pillars of Positivity: Accept, Enrich, Inspire and Empower.
The vision we work toward is an inclusive society that accepts and respects all youth and adults on the autism spectrum and empowers each person to reach his or her highest potential. This includes an engaged Autism and Asperger’s community that connects individuals, families, educators and care providers with valued resources and with each other. It is a place where individuals can be accepted for who they are and inspired to let their lights shine.
Key Programs include:
Spectrums Magazine - Portland and SW Washington's only magazine for autism spectrum disorder.
Autism Serves Kids Care Club - Volunteerism for youth and families
Support Groups (Adults on the Autism Spectrum, AWEtism We Embrace, Dads' Group, Parents Group, Girls' Group)
Social/Game Clubs (Teens/Tweens and Families)
