AUTISM RESOURCES- A TALK WITH JIM WURSTER


As parents of a young adult with Autism, my husband Chip and I have found that there are no easy answers, no obvious solutions when it comes to planning for the future. There's no guidebook. Often it comes down to coincidentally connecting with other parents or randomly finding out about organizations that work within communities to help provide a meaningful, productive and safe environment for our kids after they've aged out of school supports. This is another in a series of chats with local advocates who are making a difference by making things happen. Jim Wurster is a father, an entrepreneur and activist in Delaware County who is creating jobs for adults with Autism and other disabilities. Check out his NEW AVENUE FOUNDATION which works for inclusion, housing options, and employment. In this interview, Jim also references several other endeavors he's involved with: COMMUNITY COFFEE CUP and his COFFEE BUSINESS.
