Providing Peer Support and Social Opportunities for Disabled Adults (SODA)

About Us

Who We Are

Found It! and SODA were organically grown out of the desire and need to...

Provide peer support and social activities for young adults affected by  Asperger's Syndrome (AS), Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) High Functioning Autism (HFA) and other Neurodevelopmental disorders.


Why We Started

In Solano county, there were not many options for those higher functioning young adults that wanted to be a part of a peer group or have an active, independent social life. Most current programs were located outside of the county, cost too much, and/or are designed for youth under 18. We needed a program of our own, in our own community. After searching and seeming to come up short, we “Found It“ within ourselves to create something that we believe is truly special and want to share it with you. So now, you have Found It! Too


What We Do

Provide Peer Support* 

A facilitator will meet with the group to discuss:

  • Life's challenges
  • Motivate each other
  • Building relationships
  • Anxiety/Coping Skills
  • Communication
  • Dating
  • It's Really Up to You!

*This is a peer led group. The facilitator is only to ensure a welcoming, nonjudgmental atmosphere and to keep the group on topic. A short video maybe viewed or an agreed topic will be discussed. Participants must be moderately self sufficient and able to actively communicate.


Social Opportunities for Disabled Adults (SODA)*

We love to get together. Some of our activities include:

  • Movies
  • Bowling
  • Walks/Hikes
  • Karaoke
  • Sporting events/participation
  • Horse racing
  • You Name It!

*A parent/care provider must be present at SODA meetings and planned activity.

What You Can Do

Help get the word out and Join Us!

We get it. You want someone to talk to, someone who understands and has walked in your shoes, someone to just call friend. Living with a disability can be tough and can impair the ability to make friends and we want to help.

While our primary focus are individuals with Neurodevelopmental disorders between the ages of 18-40, we welcome ALL including those with social anxiety.


Our meetings are held at the Joseph A. Nelson Community Center, 611 Village Drive, Suisun City.


Our Peer support meetings are held on the 1st Wednesday* each month from 6:30-8:00pm.

Our SODA group (Social group) meets on the  3rd Wednesday* of each month from 6:30-8:00pm.

*Except November-January when there will only be one meeting a month and Holidays.
