April is Autism Acceptance Month, and we’re proud to share stories of awareness, impact, and achievement. Here, we share a message from Christina Jones, whose son Liam is a Farm Tech at Greens Do Good, our hydroponic farm in Hackensack, NJ, providing meaningful job training and employment to teens and adults with autism.

Working at Greens Do Good has truly changed Liam’s life. It’s not just about the invaluable experience he’s gained in sustainable agriculture, but also a sense of belonging. Every day spent at the farm has given him an opportunity to hone critical social skills, while also fostering his independence and adaptability in ways we never imagined possible.

One of the most fulfilling aspects for Liam has been the pride he feels from his contributions to our family. Bringing home greens for us to enjoy reinforces the positive impact of his work. Witnessing his smile when we express our gratitude is a heartwarming reminder of how far he has come.

My greatest hope for Liam is that he continues to feel a sense of belonging and connection within our community. Loneliness can be a significant challenge for individuals on the autism spectrum, but thanks to Greens Do Good, Liam has found purpose and meaning. Supporting programs like Greens Do Good not only enhances the well-being of individuals like Liam but also contributes to building a more inclusive and compassionate society for all.

Your support can make a world of difference. Whether making a donation or simply spreading the word about the wonderful work being done at Greens Do Good, every little bit helps.
