Who We Are


A.W.A.R.E. (Adults With Autism Recreational Events)

A.W.A.R.E. is a social group for adults with autism (ages 18+) who are able to participate in group settings without supervision. This group meets for monthly, low-cost outings throughout the metropolitan Kansas City area. Types of activities include going to ball games, playing miniature golf, and playing board games at favorite eating establishments. Attendees are expected to provide their own transportation.  

Autism Society - The Heartland is currently looking for additional facilitators of the A.W.A.R.E. social group to help plan, manage, and attend the monthly events. If you are interested in volunteering to help lead this group, please email ashofficeasst@gmail.com

Each month, the Calendar of Events will be updated with the date, time, place, and activity for this group. If you have any questions about the A.W.A.R.E. group or would like to be on an email distribution list, please send an email to ashofficeasst@gmail.com.
