Join us by supporting this new initiative to bring meaningful experiences that enrich the lives of adults with Autism and other intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDDs)
Everyone wants friends, activities, and to be a part of a family. Yet many people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) have limited opportunities to make social connections. Our goal is to create, and sustain, a safe space for individuals with IDD to not only socialize but to also promote opportunities to build meaningful relationships.

Enrique's Story: Enrique is an adult with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). Enrique is autistic and has been blind since birth. In recent years he has also developed hearing loss. Enrique has challenges and limitations, but Enrique is a kind and interested person, who desires a quality of life that includes friends, fun and happy times.
The lack of options for adults with IDD lead Enrique's dad, Ernesto, to visualize a space where his son could be surrounded by peers with similar challenges, who deserve social and emotional engagements just like everyone else. Sparrows Austin is born!
Sparrows Austin will come alive but needs a home base to start our operation. A local Austin area group home has agreed to provide the spaces for us to begin!
The group home needs a bit of help to create the spaces necessary to house Sparrows Austin!
Sparrows Austin also needs funding to hire our Activities Director and other staff!
