Let's F.O.C.U.S. Las Vegas

Project FOCUS at UNLV is in need of your support in order to continue to make college an option for our young adults with Intellectual Disability and Autism in Las Vegas!

If you went to college, think about the fun times you had, the different friends you made, the events that you attended, and yes of course....the learning.  College is so much more than just academics (although this is important), it's a time to mature, its a time to learn about different cultures, its a time to make decisions, and its a time to learn about yourself. Why would this time be any different just because you have autism or an intellectual disability?

In just 3 short years, Project FOCUS already has over 35+ young adults with intellectual disability and autism on the waiting list wanting to attend UNLV. Many more have expressed interest. We are doing our best to keep the costs low in order to make college accessible for everyone although it is still not enough. Your support will allow us to continue this great program at UNLV and will show our young adults with autism and intellectual disability that you support their post-secondary goals and dreams.

 

We hope that you can help us:

FOCUS on the COMMUNITY

FOCUS on COLLEGE

FOCUS on INCLUSION

FOCUS on LAS VEGAS

and help us to keep FOCUS FOREVER!
