Residential Options for Independent Living

A Message from Chase: All people across the autism spectrum deserve to live with dignity in a supportive community, and as independently as possible. And family members want to know that their loved ones with ASD are safe and happy throughout their lifespans. How that looks, is different for each person. Below are some residential options for you to explore and start getting some ideas about what scenario might be best for yourself or your loved one with ASD.
