We are a parent-driven Bay Area non-profit in San Mateo County, creating a unique community and building an enduring home for our adult children with special needs.
Our shared vision is a lifetime solution of purpose, individual choice, and lifelong friendships for our children, where they can thrive in a community of their peers.
Our goal is for our children to be able to live in a safe haven that will be there for them, when we no longer can be.
Our future residents have a wide range of neurodiverse diagnoses from autism to Down syndrome, developmental delay, brain tumor survivor, and Williams syndrome.
But they are not defined by their disabilities. They enjoy art, music, sports, animals, camping, academics, reading, cooking and more.
Like everyone, they want opportunities for social and educational enrichment, community engagement, skills training, employment, and financial sustainability. Many love to engage with the volunteers that come to our Farm. And all want to achieve their highest potential.
And that’s why we created Big Wave.
