Offering hope to adults with autism

Benjamin's Hope

HOLLAND, Mich. (WOOD) When a family receives the diagnosis that their child has autism, one of the many questions that may run through their minds is, “what will my child’s future look like during adulthood?” Because of community support and donations, Benjamin’s Hope is a place where people with autism can live, work, and play in a community they choose to call home.

Residents at Benjamin’s Hope can choose to live in a one-bedroom apartment or a one or two bedroom apartment with a compatible roommate. They can choose to spend time with friends in the common area, take part in fun activities, or simply enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

Benjamin’s Hope welcomes all people with and without disabilities who choose to come together to enjoy rural life in West Michigan. For more information on the program, visit their website.
