Welcome to Autism Unites!

Autism Unites (formerly Dance Into Unity) was officially established in January 2007 as a 501(c)(3) organization.  Autism Unites has been actively working in the community since 2006 to increase autism awareness. 

Using it’s model of community integration called Match-A-Friend, young adults with autism are paired to companions that facilitate problem solving, stress management, and positive social connections at home, at work, and in the community. The experience of developing a true and lasting connection motivates the young adult to make healthy life choices.

Event 6-3–2015: Adam Seagal Memorial & Legacy

Flyer v2 w1000 copy

Autism Unites (formerly Dance Into Unity) was founded by the family of Adam Seagal, a young man highly impacted by autism.

Our Dear Adam passed away on June 3, 2014 at the age of 20 leaving behind the legacy of Match-A-Friend & the Art of Connection. Our vision is for the creation of an all-inclusive, sustainable community where everyone is united through meaningful connections and where the concept of separation no longer exists.

Today, Adam’s legacy is the catalyst for a new movement that’s been launched from vision of Match A Friend and the Art of Connction, one that is improving communities through power of positive connections.
