Join us on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month for the Adult Social Club! The Club is for ages 18 and over and offers a way for you to connect and make friends with other adults with ASD who share interests and life’s challenges. Meetings are a mix between virtual Zoom meetings and in-person meet ups at a variety of locations.

The Social Club for Adults is designed for individuals who can take turns and participate in small group settings with a reliable form of language and an age-appropriate cognitive level.



  • Discuss topics that are important to you---employment, making friends, housing, movies, hobbies, dating, and more.
  • Light and informal atmosphere, so be prepared to meet new friends!
