Michael Hearts Academy, Inc. is a nonprofit organization that was founded in 2019. We are located in the Central Florida area. Our objective is to increase social skills in individuals with intellectual disabilities (i.e. Autism) by providing various activities in the community with a focus on daily living skills to enhance their lives. We serve children ages 8-21 and adults 22 and up, from all socioeconomic backgrounds, races and religions with programs that challenge, educate, and inspire. We bring together typically-developing individuals, individuals with neurodevelopment differences, and individuals from underserved areas.
