New program for older adults with autism coming to Eden II thanks to state funding

Quote:
With a $1 million funding allocation from Assemblyman Charles Fall, Eden II will launch a new program for older adults with autism, renovate one of its buildings and expand other services.

Eden II Programs, which supports and provides services for individuals with autism, will utilize the $1 million in funding to renovate its Stapleton-based building and create a new, integrated senior-based program.

It will also allow Eden II to create new vocational training opportunities, establish a senior program for older adults that accommodates their changing needs, and inspire community partnerships with other non-profit organizations.

That one program for one location is newsworthy demonstrates the problem.
