Spring has sprung!!! And with it comes dates for projects we have had in the works for a few months now! We have a church group that is providing the expertise, labor and some funding to build a fence for a family that has a child with autism. One might ask how this is fenced freedom? The answer is very simple, for this child, who does not understand safety issues and lives close to a busy road and a pond near the backyard, a fence allows him to play outside within a safe area under supervision of his parents. They can give him space to play with less concern of a free unhindered bolt to danger. We are also helping them build community by connecting them to their neighbors through the church group! First In Families at it's finest!
