ARROAutism Westside Family and Community Center Still going!

Once upon a time, we took out interior walls, expanding the interior common space at the ARROAutism Westside Family and Community Center with the vision of having large events. Thanks to that vision, and your ongoing support, Oregon’s ONLY Autism Community Center has continued to be busy, including a summer long use by ACAP, and now boasting a host of resources now available including an internet capable Blu-Ray player and stereo surround system, choice of either a projector or a large screen television to tie into that system, a full kitchen, and much more. You can rent the center for your event, or take advantage of these resources and an ever growing list of classes, lectures and groups. Here are just a few of the Center Happenings :

  • Monthly Autism Dads and Men’s group

ARROAutism on Facebook

Autism Research and Resources of Oregon (ARROAutism) is a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization supporting individuals and families with Autism. Our goal is to nurture families with Autism by providing a center of resources.  Historically, families have had to search high and low for services. We aim to change that by bringing resources together in one space. Tax ID 93-1287227.

How you can help

Every year, statistics indicate that Oregon has one of the 3 highest incidence of Autism in the United States. Despite such a large population, services for families and adults are scarce. In fact, the ARROAutism Westside Family and Community Center is the ONLY Autism Community Center in Oregon. Please make your tax-deductible donation today, and help us to continue to provide this desperately needed resource for the Autism Community.
