LIFE WITH JOY INC 

A place where young adults with and without Autism 
can meet new friends and learn new skills



Last Friday, I had a Facebook conversation with Trish - Chris's mom - she asked
what could LWJ do to alleviate the fear, depression and boredom her son - and so many other sons
and daughters - were experiencing quarantined in their group homes and supported apartments.
She asked - "What could LWJ do to give my son hope."

So we asked ourselves - "What could we do to help our clients and your loved ones realize their
dreams of getting jobs and being accepted in the Community."

We came up with a group of online classes and one on one programs that deal with health, fitness,
Community Inclusion and Pre-Vocational training.
These classes offer structure with weekly scheduled classes, real job skills and real problem solving challenges.
There was never a better time to keep your body and your mind strong.
