Up, Up & Away: Creating Opportunities As One Grows Up

Did you know that 1 in 59 children is diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder? In our community alone, there are an estimated 10,000 individuals living with autism and in need of custom programs and support services like those offered by AutismUp. Join us in showing your support, getting involved, and lifting families living with autism up! Here’s how:

Be an Ally for Autism

Watch, Share & Get Social with AutismUp


Follow AutismUp on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn and share out video to lift families with autism up. We use the hashtags #UpUpandAway, #CreatingOpportunities and #AutismUp. These hashtags reflect our mission to be there for the entire journey that families with autism face, and to improve quality of life for individuals with support services at every stage. To stay up to date on all AutismUp news, events, and ways to get involved, sign up for our eNewsletter.

If you attended Up, Up & Away: The 13th Annual AutismUp Gala on April 27, 2019 you can view photos of the successful night here.

Display an AU Lawn Sign

We’re offering free lawn signs* for you to display at your home or business. We ask that you please consider a donation to AutismUp to help support our weekly classes and activities, educational workshops, community events, and scholarship program. Share your interest in a lawn sign, and we’ll notify you via email when they’re ready for pick-up here at AutismUp.

*Limited number of lawn signs available! First come, first served — please denote your interest and we will consider additional print runs in the future.

Grab Some Gear

Wear your pride! Visit our online store to buy Autism Awareness T-shirts and other AutismUp gear. All proceeds benefit AU programs and services offered at no cost to member families.

Local Businesses — Show Your Support:

Become a LinkUp Partner

AutismUp’s LinkUp Program offers supported volunteering opportunities to participants 18+ at local businesses. We’re grateful for our current partnerships with Vision Buick GMC (photos below) and YMCA Bay View, and we’re always looking for other businesses to open their doors as new LinkUp partners, so more young adults with autism can develop on-the-job skills and build self-confidence. Learn more about LinkUp or contact Program Director, Phil Mesiti, at pmesiti@autismup.org or contact@autismup.org to get involved.

Together, we can provide help for today and hope for tomorrow, for all families living with autism.
