Welcome to Richmond House
Richmond House, a private, non-profit organization, provides residential living for adults who can live independently with support.
As an organization, Richmond House is in its early years. Presently, we have one house that serves eight adults, who pay privately for room, board and services.
Although our residents have Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnoses, with structure and support, the residents of Richmond House live without the “labels.” In fact our residents, develop long lasting friendships, enjoy “dinner parties,” take day trips, stay up talking late into the night, play pool, watch TV, go to the library, buy clothes, take a walk, shop for groceries, take the bus, play cards, try new recipes, go to a movie...all the typical fun stuff that happens in a house full of adults.
Peer support and coaching on decision-making, and personal responsibility encourages development of independence and success in work settings, both paid and volunteer, and in postsecondary education.
Plans for the future include serving more people in additional locations. Recently, Richmond House has established the Center for Adults with Autism with the mission of offering day services, social opportunities, support groups and more for older teens and adults with Autism Spectrum Disorders and their families.
Richmond House coordinates the SNAP Club which serves high-functioning individuals with ASD or Asperger’s Syndrome in middle school, high school and young adults to age 25. SNAP Club offers structured opportunities for social enjoyment which assists participants to slowly and assuredly develop friendships and achieve greater social tolerance of other individuals and environments through increased success in managing social challenges.
