Fill-A-Need Foundation is passionate and dedicated to creating a secure future for adults with special needs. There are many gaps that lie between adults with special needs and the community therefore hindering their options on the path to a successful and independent future. Fill-A-Need Foundation has a solution: The Hamlet.
The number of adults living with Autism is unimaginable. Many of these adults are a waiting list for services. The number of children that will be placed on the list when they turn 21 is truly unthinkable. The amount of serviceable adults with Special Needs will multiply by more than 100% within the next 10 years. Today, Autism is the most newsworthy disability, having a 1 in 88 diagnosis rate. Research shows that this number will continue to rise.
The issue that Fill-A-Need is focused on is the fact that these students will be aging out of high school at a higher rate. After high school, the NEXT STEP towards a rewarding future doesn't exist. Government assistance for adults with disabilities is earmarked for services. Services only exist id there are programs. Programs are only created when parents and community members build them. Their future is in our hands.
