About Us

Autism Empowerment is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization devoted to enriching and empowering the lives of youth, adults and families within the Autism community. We promote a culture of Autism Acceptance and believe every one of us has gifts to share with the world.

The vision we work toward is an inclusive society that respects youth and adults on the autism spectrum, empowering each person to reach their highest potential. We offer innovative and inspiring programs, training and services and opportunities for leadership and volunteerism for those within and supporting the Autism and Asperger community.

Key Programs include:

Spectrum Life Magazine - Portland and SW Washington's only magazine for the autism community
Autism Serves Kids Care Club - Volunteerism for youth and families
Support Groups (Adults on the Autism Spectrum, AWEtism We Embrace, Parents Group)
Social/Game Clubs (Teens/Tweens and Families)

Our four foundational pillars are: Accept - Enrich - Inspire - Empower
