Future projects for social housing and employment opportunities for young adults on the autism spectrum
La Fondation Place Coco has been working with Renwick Development and Développments La Malterie S.E.C. for the last 3 years towards the realization of a project will contribute to our community.
In 2019, the foundation was approved to provide programs for persons with Autism 2 – 20+ by the Canada Revenue Agency and for the last few years, transition into adulthood has become important to the Founder. The first graduates of the Little Red Playhouse in 2009 are now graduating from high school and there are no services for young adults. This group represents 75% of those with ASD with the balance being in the severely affected category. There is no funding from the province and they represent 35% of all Quebeckers that are recognized as having a handicap.
The Canada Malting Project will be the new home for a teen and young adult programming called The Hub. It will be the new home of various community organizations, who will offer services from social skills development, to employment coaching and a multi-media creative studio. This project will provide a 6,500 sq. ft. center. The overall project will also have shared work space dedicated to artists and their craft, a community / event space, public green spaces, a commemorative park, and public access to the Lachine Canal.
