Housing Workshop!!

This is a terrific organization founded by friend and mentor Cathy Boyle. If you live anywhere near Framingham, Massachusetts and you want to know about housing for someone with autism, try to get to this one!

Autism Housing Pathways (AHP) will present a full day workshop on housing on Saturday, December 7th, at Advocates, Inc., 1881 Worcester Road, Framingham, MA. Come prepared to roll up your sleeves and work! The goal is to end the day with an idea of what benefits your family member may be eligible for, what you can afford, and what models might be applicable to your situation. We will be completing questionnaires and worksheets, as well as Section 8 applications. You will not need to share this information with anyone; it is for your own personal use.

Attendance will be capped at 25 participants. While prior attendance at one of AHP’s presentations on housing is helpful, it is not necessary. Please RSVP to Cathy Boyle at ccampboyle@comcast.net.

The day will run from 8:30-5:15. Light refreshments will be provided, but you will need to bring your lunch. This event is free, but donations are requested. Anyone donating $35 or more will also receive a one year membership to Autism Housing Pathways.

It’s very interesting to me that the Fluties chose to remain in Mass. while Doug Jr. was being educated but moved some months back to Florida. I believe he is an adult now. I am wondering if adult services in Florida are better than in Mass. Despite the fact their foundation is here and her family is here they chose Florida over Mass. for him it appears.
