Wednesday on Current State means it’s time for Neighbors in Action, when we feature people and organizations working to make Greater Lansing a better place. Today, we learn about a non-profit working to help young adults on the autism spectrum develop better social skills. Current State talks with the executive director of Autism Spectrum Partners Providing Instruction, Recreation, and Enrichment (ASPPIRE), executive director Bob Steinkamp, and program alum and current office manager and peer mentor Aileen Hecht.
Current State is looking for more nominations for our “Neighbors In Action” feature. Please help us out and e-mail us your suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Put "Neighbors in Action" in the subject line. Or, tweet us @KARCurrentState, and tell us a little about why you think they should be featured for the great work they do.
