About

Simon, a young man with autism, would love to spend time with a male volunteer who has a similar appreciation for watching sports on TV, talking sports and attending sporting events! He is also interested in books/bookstores, bowling and current events. H e is a great conversationalist and would enjoy receiving phone calls between visits/outings. Having a friend to talk with and enjoy community participation with would add another layer to his life which would have a very positive impact. Having a developmental disability sometimes makes it harder to meet and make friends. Perhaps you'd like to extend the gift of your friendship?
