With 1 in 110 children being diagnosed, many people are affected or know someone on the autism spectrum. Autism is a life long journey and does not end as child enters adulthood. There is a need for programs that will help adults and your young adults learn the necessary skills to be successfully employed. Roses for Autism is the first business endeavor for Growing Possibilities, a nonprofit founded by Ability Beyond Disability that is dedicated to growing independence in the business world for individuals on the autism spectrum and other disabilities.
Guida’s Milk recognizes the amazing roses that can be grown with amazing people at Roses for Autism and is helping to spread the word across New England.
As a 501c nonprofit, all purchases support the further development of employment for adults on the autism spectrum.
