Our mission is to help those with autism successfully grow and transition into adulthood. By providing education, resources and community events, we promote understanding and acceptance of autism. We aim to help everyone with autism feel valued, respected and included.
The Johnson County Autism Support Group (JCASG) was created in February 2005 by a small group of parents. Throughout the years, the organization has supported individuals and families affected by autism in Johnson County via support groups, events, walks, resources, and more. In 2019, the Board of Directors went through a strategic planning process evaluating the needs of those affected by autism and how the organization can grow to service the community with more information and resources. As a result of this evaluation process, we are updating our name to Autism Community Connection and expanding our reach by adding an executive director position to our organization.
