With the assistance of Alternatives’ Supported Living Program, Jason recently moved into his own apartment at the Whitin Mill. Like many young men, he enjoys the freedom of having his own place. Another thing he shares with guys his age – he’s no homebody. He loves being out and about.
With all of the community events Alternatives sponsors at the Mill, it’s the perfect place to live for someone who likes to be as active as Jason. Just in the last few months, he’s attended free summer concerts, taken art classes, and participated in our annual cornhole tournament, the Valley Bag Toss. And, weekday mornings he just needs to walk across the Community Plaza to go to work!
Jason is part of Alternatives’ Blackstone Valley Employment Service for people with developmental disabilities in Whitinsville. As a member of a crew, he works in several different assembly and cleaning positions. Jason also gives back to the community by volunteering his time: collecting recycling from area businesses, helping out at the Douglas Senior Center and getting donations ready for display at the Blessing Barn.
Yes, Jason is a very busy guy – and, that’s just the way he likes it.
