|Brian lives in a supported apartment in Cranford with two roommates and loves being a member of CAU. While he lived at home for a period, his bother knew it was time for him to develop greater independence.
“She wanted me to learn to do things on my own,” he said. So Brian came to CAU, where he has done just that.
“I like living on my own,” he said. “I learn life skills. I clean the bathroom and the kitchen. I do my laundry. I brush my teeth – that’s very important.” Brian also works at the ARC Vocational Training Services. He attends church every Sunday and likes to go to the movies and out for dinner, visit Atlantic City, and play baseball at the local park.
“Cranford has some nice parks,” he said. “Staff are really nice,” he said. “I learn a lot and they’re very supportive. They help me take care of myself.”
