The “Fairview House” is the long term home for three autistic men supported by the services of the Autism Society of NC. Living there allows them to know they have a stable, secure home, and trained staff that genuinely care about them. Each of them have their own daily routines including: exercise, work, volunteering, maintenance of their own rooms and communal spaces in their house. They work on goals to further their independence and to become good community members. They enjoy eating daily dinners together and their free time both together and alone. In this setting they have been able to thrive.
