I had a blast working at Westwood Avenue. Not only was I able to do some really creative and fun work for some great clients, but I was also able to do it with some of my best friends. As part of the “On The Avenue” work program, I got to know several young men and women whose placement on the autistic spectrum made it difficult to find work. By providing these individuals with a good job, at a decent wage, they were able to take responsibility for their lives and grow into self sufficient adults in a supportive setting. The best part about it, is that I was there to help develop their creative side. So when their work was dont and they were itching for some expression, we’d make movies, draw pictures, or write stories. It might be the most fun I’ve ever had at a job, and certainly helped me recognize my love for sharing and caring.
