We are on a mission: we want to inspire individuals with autism and similar special needs to achieve their full potential
With every purchase you are supporting meaningful income opportunities; ensuring our artisans with autism and similar special needs continue to have a supportive COMMUNITY and the OPPORTUNITY to thrive, add value and achieve a sense of PURPOSE.
Why is our program important?
In 2020 the CDC reported that approximately 1 in 54 children in the US is diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
Over the next decade an estimated 707,000 to 1,116,000 teens (each year) will enter adulthood and age out of autism supported services.
Aspire offers job training and paid employment to those with ASD and similar special needs.
We started out with two products; the Double Wrap Leather Bracelet and the Texas Leather Keychain. Today, we have over 200 products in our portfolio including: jewelry, homeware, bags and travel accessories, apparel, pet accessories and even an accessory making kit which enables you to create Aspire products at home!
I have the gold chain masklace and I love mine! It's THE essential accessory!
I love my Aspire artisan wrap! Perfect for the Houston weather!
I received this beautifully designed, hand sewn wrap made by Christopher Williams. I love wearing trendy clothes. I received lots of compliments and continue to receive compliments when worn. The wrap is comfortable, trendy and chic!
More than half of young adults with autism remain unemployed or unenrolled in education and nearly half of 25 year olds with autism have never held a paying job.
Since 2016, we have been working to change that!
