Hope Autism Foundation ("HAF") is a not-for-profit public charity dedicated to establishing a day center based program to meet the vocational and social needs of adults with Autism Spectrum Disorders ("ASD") within the Somerset Hills, New Jersey community.
HAF supports the development and maintenance of programs that enroll adults over the age of 21 who continue to require individual supports after they have completed their school-based education. These programs will use empirically validated teaching strategies and techniques derived from the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis ("ABA"). The participants in these programs will have a place that will assist them with life-long vocational opportunities, while promoting independence and a high quality of life through ongoing education.
Hope Autism Solutions, an innovative program supported by HAF, was recently featured in The Bernardsville News.
The program has been a resounding success but, as this informative article states, is expected to be at full capacity by July. Your support is needed more than ever so that we can help provide such high quality services to even more adults living with autism.

This innovative program, developed and run by Our House Inc., in partnership with The Somerset Hills YMCA, Youth Consultation Service and HAF is one of the first of its kind in Central New Jersey. The program will help adults with autism realize their potential by providing appropriate supervision and support within a socially welcoming environment.
