I learned about Autism After 18, this month’s charity spotlight, through a local networking group, Business Leaders of Charlotte (BLOC). Brett Metcalf discussed BLOC and then Margaret Neelson, a chairperson from Autism After 18, explained their mission of unlocking life’s potential for adults with autism. Her son has autism and she had a vision of creating a support network where he could make friends and learn life skills. That vision has certainly come to fruition over the past few years and they have a big vision of creating chapters across the country.
