Welcome to Asperger Works!

The story of Asperger Works embodies the dedication, passion, and determination of a handful of individuals who are deeply committed to helping adults with Asperger’s Syndrome obtain work. Our goal is to give employment-related services and training that will result in having talented but very underserved individuals find fulfilling work, stay employed, and advance in their careers.

Founded in 2012 by two Aspies with only a vision for a better future, our organization has evolved and achieved 501(c)(3) non-profit status in 2014. Great challenges lie ahead of us as we move to provide much needed services to those with Asperger’s Syndrome. But we cannot achieve our goals alone. We rely on the hard work of our Boards of Directors and Advisory, the goodwill of community organizations, and supporters like you.

In 2020 our organization, like many others, was adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. We have not able to hold any consequential fundraising activities that resulted in lost revenue. As a result, we had to close our office in Lawrence. This was a major blow to this upward mobile scrappy little nonprofit.

But the First Presbyterian Church of Haverhill stepped up to the plate and offered us an office space so that we could continue our work. It will take us some time to stand securely on our feet again, but with your help, the only place we can go is up. By working together, we can raise awareness of the devastating effect lack of employment and underemployment have on a large segment of the population.

According to the CDC and other entities, only 1 in 5 Aspies are gainfully employed. The rest are either unemployed or underemployed and need to be supported by their families and the government. Every adult with Asperger’s wants to be a contributing member of society. AWorks wants to help them achieve this goal.

Thank you for visiting our site. We hope that the information provided here will be a learning experience and a motivation, to those of you who can, to reach out and help and, for those who need aid, to contact us.
