At Junior’s Place of Hope, our mission is to provide support for African immigrant families in the United States, dealing with diagnoses of autism and other special needs and to provide a safe and supportive day program in Sierra Leone for people with autism and other special needs.  We want them to achieve independence and spirit.  We strive to provide our members with the skills, knowledge and confidence to be productive and respected members of society.

Sierra Leone is always a place where my family and I get peace and unconditional love.  Seeing everyone come together for family gatherings, always brings joy to my heart.  The community in my neighborhood have been sensitized to autism and disabilities, and have embraced our son Junior with open arms.  He participates in all community activities, and is loved by all.  I want that same acceptance for all individuals with special needs in Sierra Leone.
