Community Programming

Our core initiative Legends Mentoring Program provides one-on-one support to individuals with autism. Paired with caring mentors, they gain a personal advocate to understand, encourage and guide them, leading to improved social interactions and a greater sense of inclusion. Currently offered to children, we are now expanding to adults during key life transition periods.


Community Events

Jake’s House hosts fun, interactive events, designed to bring the autism community together and empower guests to socialize in safe and entertaining environments. Our signature event, the annual Holiday Party, has been welcoming and spreading joy amongst hundreds of families for 14 years. Currently hosted in Toronto and Ottawa, we are expanding to more cities across Canada.

Inclusive Living

Jake’s House is addressing the housing gap for Canadians with autism. Currently in development in collaboration with community partners from multiple sectors, our solutions will make a range of needed supports accessible, ensuring individuals’ unique needs are met. Soon, Jake’s House will be offering those who need it a place to call home.
