The Kaiser Permanente Thrive Award at Cinequest

Each year, one of The Cinequest Film Festival’s most life-affirming films receives the coveted Kaiser Permanente Thrive Award. This year, Beyond has captured their hearts with its powerful message of resilience and hope. This remarkable achievement reflects the incredible talent and dedication of the entire crew involved in bringing Tamara Mark’s extraordinary story to life on the big screen as she raises her two non-verbal adult sons, Ian and Harry, who are highly impacted by their Autism.

The screening and awards ceremony for Beyond will be held at The Showcase Icon Theatre and Kitchen in Mountainview California on Sunday August 27th. If you’d like to join us there is more information below.

Beyond Ranch Foundation’s mission is to build a low-cost inclusive community serving the needs of adults who are profoundly impacted by their autism. We are committed to creating a safe haven where the residents can thrive while being supported through purposeful care.

Join us on! is not just another social network; it’s a sanctuary. It’s where understanding grows, support networks blossom, and true inclusivity is not just a buzzword but a daily practice. Here, parents, educators, caregivers, and friends of autistic individuals can connect, share experiences, and learn from each other in an environment that champions empathy and understanding. While the forum centers on this group, it warmly welcomes the broader autism community and contributors to it.
