Quest for Independence
Ages 18-29

Creating revolutionary change
for young adults with autism

Quest is an innovative post-secondary program that helps build skills of independence for living and integrating into the community. Questers learn how to prepare meals, keep house, manage money and social engagements, develop vocational skills through job sampling, and explore their communities through social, leisure, and recreational activities. Participants work together and learn together at either the Quest model apartment at the Centre or at the Centre’s apartment in Old Strathcona.


    • Persons with Developmental Disabilities funding under Family Managed Supports funding through PDD
    • No longer attend high school
  • Family commitment to increasing independence of the supported individual

*We are currently seeking funding to offer Quest for Independence to non PDD-eligible individuals. For information on how to become a funding partner, click here.

The Centre for Autism Services Alberta needs your help to help furnish and stock our newest community apartment in Old Strathcona!

With a second off-site Quest apartment ready for participants, but sitting empty, we need our friends and supporters to help us raise $10,000 to provide the furniture and small kitchen appliances and tools that will allow Questers to move in and begin practicing social and life skills.
