I had the opportunity to get to know the founder and employees of The Sean Ashley house many years ago because they rented a suite from the building I managed. I did not know about autism until I leased the suite to them. I did not know what to think about someone who was "different", but due to getting to know the clients and employees, I began to be able to understand and enjoy being around these "very special" children and adults that God has gifted these families with. This is a GREAT non profit organization! They are absolutely wonderful with their clients! Their clients are able to do things that they would have missed out on if it wasn't for The Sean Ashley House! I applaud them for the work they have done and work/help yet to be given!!!! It truly was a blessing to have this organization as a tenant and learn that autism is not something to be afraid of. I pray that God Blesses them with many more years of service!
The SAH came in to our lives more than two years ago and has provided our son Richie with a safe and nuturing environment that has allowed him to grow in independance and confidence, The entire staff have been a godsend to us and Richie and he truly loves all of them. Thank you Sean Ashley House.
My Grandson is a resident of Sean Ashley House and I have found the staff to be very helpful when we're planning a visit, the aides are very good to our "treasure" and we can lay our heads down at night and know he is safe, clean and taken care of.
Serving on the Board of The Sean Ashley House has been a rewarding and worthwhile experience. I have seen the organization grow so much in the past 5 years under the direction of CEO Kelly Benson. I have also seen a boy who is my best friend's son son grow and prosper ever since he came to The Sean Ashley House. It is such a comfort knowing he is there and makes it easy to volunteer my time to serve such a great and much needed organization.
Thankful for what you do.helps a a lot of people understand more about their loved one who has this problem.God Love them.
The thing that impress me the most about the Sean Ashley House; is the individualized care that the staff extends to their clients.
You can tell that they are committed and love the people in their care. This is more than a job to them.... this is a vocation.
My autistic son lived in one of their HCS homes for about 7 years. In 2005 he became emotionally unstable and needed to be hospitalized. Before the ambulance arrived, the police came. Because my son is unable to answer questions much at all, he became even more agitated when questioned by the police. After that occurred The Sean Ashley House sought to have the Houston police department trained to handle special needs of autistic individuals; Dennis Debbaubt presented his " Autism Risk and Safety Management for Law Enforcement" to them. Now that training is required by most of the police force. And the way they now handle incidents involving autistic persons has improved.
