Mission Statement

Yampa Valley Autism Program provides resources and direct services to individuals and families living with autism or other disorders to cultivate their abilities and maximize quality of life.

Organizational History

YVAP formed in 2002 as a grassroots support group by a group of parents with family members on the autism spectrum, then developed into an actual program in 2007. As more and more children have been diagnosed, the program has grown forming our own 501 (c) 3. We currently have a full time executive director and 2 staff persons and one part time person. In January 1, 2010, we acquired Community Cultivation, a horticultural work-ready program. In past, we had provided financial support to CC supporting our clients that attend their program. This merger has been valuable to both entities providing for less duplication of services for our older clients.


Healthy communities in the Yampa Valley where all people are valued and accepted.

Our Commitment

To provide specialized therapies, family support services, training, education, public awareness, collaboration, and advocacy.
