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.
