Why Glyn Hopkin decided to help people with autism
The SPACE program is meant to bring talented people and employers together for a mutually beneficial relationship. By helping these people get hired, he has helped the public recognize the true value and intelligence in people with autism spectrum disorder.
Then there's a simple fact that these young adults need jobs, and he’s helping them get them. Everyone needs to make a living so they can put a roof over their heads and food on the table. Unemployment takes a toll on any family, whether someone has autism or not.
The employers also have much to gain from this program. Through the SPACE Initiative, local businesses are getting connected to qualified individuals who can do good work for their company.
