The Yellow Door
The mission of The Yellow Door is to support to individuals with autism and their families while promoting student leadership and involvement in the Chico community.
The Yellow Door came together out of two desires: to support individuals with autism and their families as well as provide volunteer opportunities and promote awareness to the Chico community. The Center for Disease Control places the current rates of autism at 1/88 children—a number that continues to increase. Individuals with autism and other disabilities and their families often fight for awareness, recognition as individuals and services that are limited. Our hope is to connect students and community members with willing individuals with autism and their families to promote understanding, personal connection and disability awareness. Our intent is through events such as Chico Walks for Autism a greater sense of community and awareness will be developed for all those participating.
The name, “The Yellow Door” comes from an individual with autism that Josie worked with many years ago that liked doors. When asked what their favorite color for a door would be if they could pick, they answered “yellow, because it’s like opening a door of sunshine.” That positive image is something that The Yellow Door hopes to foster.
Autism touches many of our lives but I probably wouldn’t be organizing a fundraiser if it wasn’t for my nephew. Mason has taught me a lot about autism and life in the last six years. Experiencing his struggles and triumphs can be a roller coaster, but his heart and perseverance show the world that kids with autism are different, but not less.
The Yellow Door has been key to Mason’s development. They have been an invaluable resource for Mason, and a community for him and his family.
