About Us

Our Mission

Like so many other parents who have disabled adult children, I started to visit various agencies and came across Rimland. Although letting my daughter live somewhere else was maybe the hardest choice in my life, I knew it was the best decision for her. Within the first day she was with Rimland, she adjusted so well. Every time I visit her at her group home, she is smiling and happy. I can never thank Rimland enough for the kind loving care they provide.

Our mission is to provide realistic and essential supports to adults with autism that reflect their desired conditions of living related to eight core dimensions to one’s life:
  • Emotional well-being
  • Interpersonal relationships
  • Material well-being
  • Personal development
  • Physical well-being
  • Self-determination
  • Social inclusion
  • Individual rights

Our purpose at Rimland is fundamentally to see the world through the eyes of an individual with autism and to use this perspective to support them in their culture as independently as possible.  While we cannot cure the underlying cognitive deficits of autism by understanding and accepting them, we can design services that are effective in meeting the challenges of this unique population.

Please watch the video below for more information on our mission, our history, and the population we serve, and consider donating or volunteering.
