Teva Community is a small nonprofit creating safe, supported living for nonspeaking autistic people on 35 acres of beautiful national forest, just five miles from downtown Prescott, Arizona.
In addition to housing, Teva Community will run entrepreneurial and day programs for residents and local autistic adults, and training programs for direct support providers. We will hold events in the retreat section of our property which contains a large lodge with a commercial kitchen, 12 bunkhouses, and 2 bathhouses.
Types of planned retreats include family adventure camps, retreats to educate educators, and rentals for non-profit organizations and groups to enjoy our camp setting and amenities. Some of our planned amenities include an amphitheater, ropes course, miniature golf course, human foosball, gaga-ball pit, frisbee golf, adaptive swings, hiking, canoeing at nearby lakes and enjoying all that nature has to offer.
A core part of all of our programs is that we support the communication choice of our participants and are dedicated to assisting them in achieving their goals — whether that is improving their ability to perform activities of daily life, starting their own small business, performing at an open-mic poetry reading, or running a marathon.
