Help TEF Dreamers Achieve their Dreams
through Meaningful Engagement!
"It's hard after graduation to find a job where I belong. I'm not cut out for college but I'm still looking for interesting things to do. The Extended Family is for people with autism who can't find a place in the world. I got promoted to Director of Inventory because I'm so great at organizing. The Extended Family provides a place where people with autism help others." -Joey, TEF Participant
