ProjectFREE Mission: To implement a bold new concept for adults with Asperger’s, intellectual and developmental disabilities who have the ability and the passion to live and work independently by creating a safe and supportive living, learning, and working environment that intrinsically connects each individual to their community.

Our Inspiration: Lauren’s Story Lauren personifies what is possible when a person focuses on their abilities and breaks down barriers. From the day she was born, we recognized that her life would be about what she would achieve despite what the larger society might think is possible. Thirty years of challenges and successes—including being the first mainstreamed student in a public high school, a performing musician and holding down a job in the “real world”—still places Lauren in a world with very limited career and independent life options. Through living, learning, and working, every person can compete in, and contribute to their community and society at large.


ProjectFREE RisingStarz announce their next production slated for
this August.

This will be their most ambitious project as they are preparing for their original production of Love the Hard Way: The Rise of Halcyon. This
