Friday Night Fun is offered the fourth Friday of every month (excluding July) from 5 to 9 p.m. at the Maumee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church, 20189 N. Dixie Hwy. The program is through Bittersweet Farms and is for adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorders.
Outdoor activities, meal prep, family-style meals, crafts, games, movies and clean-up make up the majority of the evening. Reservations are required to attend. The cost of each session is $25.
Because of a grant from the Marathon Classic, scholarships are available. Contact Heidi LeGrand (419-875-6986, ext. 1242) to find out more information.
Friday Night Fun utilizes Bittersweet’s recreational philosophy, which is to allow a safe place for individuals with autism to go and socialize with peers, while also allowing their caregivers some extra free time.
Bittersweet Farms is a 30-year-old non-profit organization that serves individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders using a farm-related model that encourages meaning, partnership, active engagement, and support. The mission of Bittersweet Inc. is to positively impact the lives of individuals with autism and those whose lives they touch.
The next program is Feb. 28.
