Norwell committee to spruce up Road to Responsibility home

Posted Jun. 4, 2016 at 4:33 AM 



NORWELL

The Norwell Beautification Committee is looking to raise $1,000 to create landscape for the Road to Responsibility home on Main Street in Norwell.

Selectman Alison Demong said the effort is really a win-win for the town and the business.

“A lot of people commented that they didn’t know what the house was or why it was there. Since it’s such a visible building, we thought it would help the nonprofit and improve the look of town center,” Demong said.

She said the board approached the beautification committee and Road to Responsibility, both who were interested in the project.

Rob Lever, Road to Responsibility director of communications, said the building, on Main Street next to Devine Feed and Pet, was constructed about two years ago and is home to five residents.

Road to Responsibility provides adults with disabilities the opportunity to live and work, with the support they might need. This includes residential homes that offer 24-hour staffing, at home supports or more independent apartment.

Road to Responsibility offers training, new programs to cater to individuals with autism

Stacey MacMillan has seen the needs in her field change wildly since she started working at Road to Responsibility in 2003.

As the number of people with autism spectrum disorder grew, so did her desire to learn more about how to help the people she and the organization serve.

So when the Marshfield-based nonprofit offered to cover tuition costs for a graduate program in autism studies, she signed up along with 14 of her co-workers. Set to complete the program this year, the Weymouth resident said she has learned better goal planning and communications skills that will help in her job.
