It is a regrettable fact that those with disabilities are at a higher risk of being hurt or victimized in today’s world. While anyone can be vulnerable to this type of harm, risk levels can be elevated for those with physical limitations or intellectual and developmental disabilities. It is important to educate our families on the different types of safety skills and resources available to them in the community. We want to equip our community with the knowledge and resources so we all can live a healthy life. Families can register for the Safety Fair at www.ieautism.org/events.
The Autism Society currently serves families spanning across the Inland Empire through the Coachella Valley. For over 36 years, the Autism Society Inland Empire has connected people to the resources they need through education, advocacy, support, information and referral, and community programming.
Our mission is to create connections, empowering everyone in the autism community with the resources they need to live fully. We envision creating a world where everyone in the autism community is connected to the support they need, when they need it.
