Together, we can unlock everyone’s potential.

Our vision is to grow forward. To move ahead, we needed our own building.

Thanks to our door-openers, we now have a new home!

The next step: make it the right space for our neurodiverse students, families, and the community.

Why the capital campaign?

1 in 42 children in Minnesota is on the autism spectrum.
1 in 5 Minnesotans deals with mental illness.
85% of adults with ASD are unemployed.

Students who graduate from AOWL have a 100% post-secondary placement -
either employment, transition program, or two or four-year college.

AOWL sees the potential of each individual and helps them reach it.

Think of that potential.
For happiness. For health. For community.

What if we could unlock it? Together?


With our new K-12 school facilities, we can expand from 72 students to 125, unlocking their social, emotional, and academic potential.


Expanding the amount and type of space for therapy services allows us to jump from 100 clients to 500, empowering them with the tools to manage their emotional, mental, and behavioral health.


With new space, we can grow our adult education programming from 5 young adults to 40, preparing them to live their fully realized, independent lives and soar to new heights.


And with our wonderful new outdoor spaces, we can offer more than double the size of our summer camps and other outdoor enrichment programs.

Thanks to our six amazing door-opener families, we bought the building!

We've raised $7M toward our goal of $10M. 

We are now raising an additional $3M to create an amazing campus that will unlock the potential of students and their families through each of our services.
