Keep Autistic Man At Work

This autistic young man has been working with us since May 2019. He comes in 4 days a week to clean cages, change water bottles and do other small chores as well as spend time with the rats at The Rat Retreat. Alex does not have a job, so to keep him with us while he is in school, we offered him a stipend of $50 a week. Because we are a small rescue, we have depended on separate donations to pay for this stipend. We only have enough to pay him for two more weeks so need to raise enough to guarantee funds for him for another 10 weeks at least. (We are going to have to keep doing these fundraisers as long as he is here which will likely be another 2 years, so we would be so grateful to raise more.) Alex has been a faithful, good worker and the animals love him. He had not been able to find a job before coming to us, so having a regular place to go where he can earn a little money has made a huge difference in his life. We work closely with his life coach to make sure that we are all benefiting from this relationship. Please help it to continue. You will be helping an autistic young person to have an income and helping an animal rescue to keep going.
