Founded in 1997 by two group home workers determined to remedy their clients’ lack of meaningful activities, KindTree – Autism Rocks provides support, services, and information to empower and improve the quality of life for individuals and families living with autism, and the professionals who serve them. From its inception, this “grass roots” all volunteer nonprofit has maintained its focus on serving and celebrating people on the autism spectrum through art, education, recreation, and community.
In the past twentysix years, KindTree – Autism Rocks has grown from offering an overnight retreat in the Oregon forest for six adults to becoming a successful 501(c)(3) nonprofit with a 2,000+ distribution list, hundreds of student and community volunteers, a growing skill training curriculum serving dozens of students, and an art program representing artists from Lane County and the world. KindTree – Autism Rocks serves many additional individuals through various community recreation programs, social media, support groups, and provides real social events/activities where everyone can feel safe and be themselves.
With warm hearted whimsy, an open sense of family and a deep level of caring, we reach within ourselves to embrace our flaws, gather our strengths, and offer our love, while reaching out to people on the autism spectrum, their families and caregivers, and to our community at large. Through the power of self-advocacy in an atmosphere of acceptance and respect, autistic and neuro-normal people alike can work toward self-realization.
Two young men with autism share their feelings about KindTree – Autism Rocks “Friends & Family Camp”, a place where you can come on your own or with your family and caregivers and be valued, respected, and feel what Heaven is like. Magic happens. Really.
