Water Lantern Celebration 2021 is the primary fundraising event for A Little Compassion Inc. (a 501(c)(3) nonprofit) and its flagship program, The Nest Coffee House. Our little non-profit organization has a big mission to change the lives of young adults with autism, intellectual and developmental disabilities or neurodiversity.

This year because of supporters like you we not only survived COVID-19 but found new and innovative ways to support the young adults we serve. We believe that every young adult should have the opportunity to work, play, and thrive in their own community. We've also reached higher to create a community rooted in inclusion, acceptance and celebration of uniqueness. Together we are changing lives.

Thank You!
