The Together Community at Hosur

(Greater Bengaluru) for people with autism, their friends and families


Together Foundation was established in 2015. One of its founding objectives was to create a residential project for people with autism to live independently and happily, after the lifetime of their parents. In August 2022, the Foundation launched The Together Community, a residential project, in partnership with Vedaanta Senior Living. Vedaanta Senior Living is a specialist senior care company that manages several communities across South India. Vedaanta will be providing services at The Together Community towards care giving, F&B, housekeeping, security, primary medical facility and overall maintenance, for both special adults and the parents.
Located at Hosur, on the border of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu, The Together Community is an integrated space where adults with autism will learn to live independently and continue to live in the community beyond the lifetime of their parents. The Together Community will accommodate thirty-eight families, with independent living for adults with autism and their parents in the same campus. The special adults will live in studio apartments, with the support of caregivers, professionals and house parents. The parents of the special adults will live in the same campus, in individual villas. The campus will consist of infrastructure and amenities to help live a full life: skill development centre, cafeteria serving nutritious meals, community hall, primary health centre, gymnasium, swimming pool, parks, temple etc. This is part of a larger, 45-acre inclusive community known as Sri Shankara Colony at Hosur.
The Together Community will be managed by a team of professionals with the long term involvement and commitment of parents. The parents will be part of the management of the community and take up specific responsibilities for its smooth functioning. A support group has been created to help parents plan the transition of their children to The Together Community in 2025.
