“I was drawn to the mission of Birch Family Services and its New Frontier Program, which aids adults on the autism spectrum as they age out of traditional services. As parents, we want to know that our children have a safe and secure future, even when they are grown. Adults with disabilities need safe housing and gainful employment in order to live complete and satisfying lives. I hope to help open doors.”
