Establishing Group Housing for Adults with ASD
Do you have a grown child with autism who lives in a group home, or would you like to have your child live in a group home one day?
Since January, a parent-organized group called Community Life has been meeting to discuss and plan a nonprofit housing cooperative for adults with autism, including those who don't qualify for developmental disability services or who are on a waiting list, and those who receive services but need more support.
After a break in August, this group will continue to meet once a month to discuss topics related to creating a housing co-op. All meetings are held at the Community United Church of Christ (CUCC), 2650 Table Mesa Dr. in Boulder, from 5-7 pm. The meetings begin promptly at 5 pm and are potluck-style gatherings.
The September 16th meeting will include introductions and icebreakers for new members of the group, as well as two guest speakers.
This is a long-term project, and ASD adults and parents of ASD children of all ages are invited to participate in the discussion. For more information, please contact Susan Glairon at email@example.com.
