Autism-friendly housing soon available in Holland | News
HOLLAND, Mich. (WZZM)- Benjamin's Hope is a first of its kind community built for families affected by autism.
The project involves a 40 acre property in Holland, which will include six residential homes tailored specifically to those who have special needs.
Krista Mason has been working on Benjamin's Hope for the past two years and named the project after her 17-year-old son who has autism.
Each home has the space to accommodate four adults, with their own bedrooms and living areas.
Two homes are almost ready. Mason says they should be completed in the next couple of months.
Community support is important. Benjamin's Hope is holding an "awareness raiser" for the community.
The family-friendly event will take place September 13th from 6-9 p.m. at 15468 Riley Street in Holland.
