100% of proceeds from this event go directly to F.O.R.W.A.R.D. as they continue to raise awareness and momentum in both the Greater Boston Area and beyond on the need to create safe, affordable and progressive housing for individuals on the autism spectrum.

     Today, one in every 68 children in America are diagnosed with Autism. With 71% of adults on the Autism Spectrum cared for by family members at home, a national crisis in housing for the developmentally disabled is brewing. F.O.R.W.A.R.D. seeks to build a successful future for these individuals by providing; “A small scale model housing community where adults with Autism and related disabilities will prosper in a safe, supportive environment”. Our duplex on Hokum Rock Road, in South Dennis, will help provide much needed housing for this deserving population.

     F.O.R.W.A.R.D. enjoys a unique collaboration with the Town of Dennis, Housing Assistance Corporation, (HAC), and Cape Abilities. Currently, they are working towards finalizing and implementing an initial plan, building two homes for eight people, with this talented and dedicated team.
