Judy Hanson
Autism Home Base
Judy Hanson is the CEO of Autism Home Base, a social club for adults with autism and their families. Judy founded the charity nearly ten years ago when her son aged out of high school. The group has grown to serve 165 members in Durham Region. 
AHB hosts daily social and recreational programs on-line, in the community and at their hub space, one of a handful in Canada that serve autistic adults over age 18. No longer alone, members are connected to a supportive community of peers.
This presentation will explain the work that Autism Home Base does for the Durham Region Community and the unique and diverse needs of those that we serve. I will share stories of how we got started, share experiences of our members, and what the future will look like for our organization.
