Mimi’s Mission is a local 501c3 non-profit organization that has been helping Downriver families in need since 2015. The organization has evolved over the years and since 2020, our focus and mission are to aid Downriver autistic individuals and their families. Through generous donations from businesses and individuals, Mimi’s Missions is often able to provide help and resources to families who have special needs children and adults.  Our organization does not offer financial or monthly assistance, but instead provides unique resources and programs


Throughout each year, Mimi’s Mission runs programs geared at helping Downriver autistic individuals and their families. Our Autism Acceptance Group  program is a parent-driven support group that offers socialization, meetings, a 90 minute family swim session, dinner, demonstrations, and/or activities on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of each month (except holidays). The Autism Acceptance Group is a unique program that is open to Downriver autistic individuals and their families. In spring of 2022, we also launched Downriver Young Adults, a program similar to our Autism Acceptance Group, for autistic individuals between 17-30 years old.

While those are the main on-going programs Mimi’s Mission presents, we add many more during the year, often including toy drives, children’s food drives, our popular Secret Santa holiday assistance program for Downriver families with a child with a special need or disability, and so many more.

Please take your time reviewing our site for a better understanding of what we do and ways you can help! We appreciate the generous and continued support of our Downriver community members with special needs and their families!
