The Veolia Foundation helps to provide new facilities for young people with autism

The Veolia Environnement Foundation supports ADMR Les Maisonnées in the development of a plot of land meant for autists.

ADMR Les Maisonnées is a French NGO, established by parents of autistic children, and it has created living spaces (medicalized homes) for 36 young people with autism. Looking to expand its facilities, the NGO purchased a plot on which it hopes to build appropriate accommodation for a further 15 young people. The plot is being developed with the help of a grant from the Veolia Foundation.

On this redeveloped plot, new activities will be proposed to the young autistic adults: production of osier, cultivation of fruit trees (apples, pears), growing of red fruits (to make jam), truck farming, upkeep of open spaces, discovery of the problematic of environmental conservation, sensory itinerary dedicated to odors, etc. The residents of a nearby retirement home will be invited to participate in these activities, thus uniting people from different generations.
