Our Story

Formed in 1995, S.A.F.E. Inc. started as the gathering of small group of families affected by autism. The common motive among the group was to provide support and resources to one another and to the Community. Many of the members of the group had not been exposed to autism in the past. As they learned, experienced and shared, they were woven together as a family. That founding 'family' is what laid the foundation for what the organization is today - a powerful resource for children on the autism spectrum and their family members. Since the founding years, the organization has grown exponentially and has expanded to offer a well of knowledge, resources, advocacy, support, family events, extracurricular activities and so much more. The future planning and growth never stops and each member of the S.A.F.E. team work tirelessly to improve the autism experience for its members and their families. We believe that people living with autism can live full and purposeful lives. That belief empowers us to carry out our work every day. We are excited for your family to be woven into the beauty of our membership spectrum, join today!
