Our House Inc., in partnership with the Somerset Hills YMCA, Youth Consultation Services and Hope Autism Foundation, have developed the program “Hope Autism Solutions” to open in the Fall in Basking Ridge, NJ. This program is referred to as “A Program Without Walls”.

The individuals to be served have tried the typical adult training centers and other programs but have not been successful. These groups of individuals are socially and emotionally isolated due to the lack of meaningful and well-designed programs which need to be specialized to meet their unique needs. They will now be served in a program tailored on an individual basis where they will feel they are socially and emotionally welcomed.

A wish list has been created at Bed Bath & Beyond for the program opening in Basking Ridge, NJ. Our House Inc. and Hope Autism have begun the exciting construction process and look forward to opening it's doors soon.
