Young Adults: Consumers age 29 or under get together to learn about the issues that affect people with disabilities. The club also is a social group and has planned different activities such as trips to Atlantic City, the movies and shopping malls.
Autism First meets with the Young Adults Club. It offers training and discussions on how to be independent in the community for people with Autism. About the founder: Bill Krebs was placed in special education classes at a young age due to his developmental disability, where he felt controlled and contained. Today, Bill is the proud recipient of the Brighter Futures Award, Justin Dart Award, and the Mental Health Award. He was recently awarded funding from Grants for Autism Advocacy and Support from the Philadelphia Autism Project to create or strengthen a support group for individuals impacted by Autism.
Anyone 18-29 years is welcome to attend. Call Mary Beth, Ext. 335 or Bill Krebs, Ext. 197.
