A community where people with disabilities including autism

and people without disabilities thrive and feel a sense of belonging.


Our mission is to create communities in Columbus where adults with autism and other disabilities, older adults, families and diverse neighbors form cohesive, intergenerational neighborhoods of mutual support.

 Autism Living is catalyzing the planning and development process to maximize interaction among community members. Community planning and development will incorporate sustainable and human-centered design practices, community meeting spaces, access to transportation options, and several different housing options.  Housing will be designed with health, safety and wellbeing in mind. Professional supports will be utilized as needed and determined by residents with neighbor-to-neighbor engagement providing the foundation for the community.
