    PACID is a grassroots organization of over 180 families with adult children who have intellectual and/or developmental disabilities. All of the families are from the Triangle region of North Carolina and virtually all still have their adult child living at home with them. Roughly half the adult children are on the autism spectrum. Our families seek to move their adult child into a space of their own in the coming months and years, whether it’s to a group home, independent living, or an “intentional community.”
