Avondale House

Avondale House provides individuals with autism the resources, education, and training to develop to their fullest potential from age three through their lifetime. In 1976, a parent group of children with autism formed a cooperative to provide weekend respite and after-school services for one another and since that time Avondale House has continued to grow and become a leading provider of direct services and support to individuals with autism and their families. Avondale House currently offers program services in a state-of-the-art, 33,000-square-foot facility, located on a 7.4 acre gated and secured campus. The Avondale House current building is specifically designed to address the unique sensory, educational, and developmental needs of its program participants. As the only organization in the greater Houston area offering comprehensive services to individuals with a primary diagnosis of autism, Avondale House provides an integrated approach to assisting its participants through four primary program areas: a year-round day school, an adult day program, residential services and an employment services program. Licensed by the Texas Health and Human Services, Avondale House group residential services provide a supportive, long-term solution for adults with autism that are unable to reside independently or live with family due to the severity of their condition. Avondale House is home to many residents who enjoy family-style living and activities in four group homes. Individuals participate in weekend and evening recreation and receive 24/7 support from dedicated staff with their medical needs and daily hygiene and receive training in everyday household tasks such as laundry, cooking and housekeeping.
