Michael’s Goal | Gaining meaningful employment

At age 58, Michael came to SARRC unemployed. Self-sufficient and hardworking, SARRC helped Michael secure a job where he recently celebrated his one-year anniversary. According to his supervisor, Michael is one of the company’s most reliable and dedicated employees. Every day, Michael independently rides the bus to his job and has proudly achieved his goal of gaining meaningful, competitive employment.


Tony, Eleni and Michael are three shining examples of SARRC's commitment to individuals with autism of all ages and stages of their lives:

  • Tony, age 3, overcame significant language barriers in our Community School and can now effectively communicate his needs and desires. Watch his story…
  • Eleni, age 16, began working with SARRC as a child and as a teenager, has blossomed into a talented runner on her high school cross-country team, recently earning a varsity letter. Watch her story…
  • Michael, at age 58, relocated to Phoenix two years ago and worked with SARRC to find a competitive, meaningful job leveraging his unique skills and abilities.

Their goals—and thousands of others—are achieved because of supporters like you. Your contribution will help us achieve our vision of integrating people with autism into inclusive communities. Help us achieve our goals through a year-end donation to SARRC today…
