Who We Are

We are parents, professionals and advocates who have either loved, known or cared for a young person with FASD. A 501(c)3 non-profit, FASD Communities was founded in 2011 by a group of parents who discovered that there was no “next” for our children. They didn’t fit in existing group homes for people with Down syndrome, cerebral palsy and other developmental disabilities. But to move them into a college dorm or an apartment without residential and social supports was a recipe for failure. So, to address this gap we are creating our own model.

Enter FASD Communities: Our mission is to provide a FASD resident-based living center that combines a homey atmosphere with meaningful vocational opportunities, that focuses on what you can do, not just what you can’t. A place to develop your talents, engage in sports and recreational programs and find plenty of lifelong friends.
