LEBANON, NH – Adults with special needs will soon have a place to gather in Grafton County.

The “Spark Community Center” is set to open its doors in downtown Lebanon sometime in late spring. Co-Founders Lisa Green and John Fenley came up with the idea due to the lack of resources in the area.

The problem hit close to home for the pair because Green’s son has autism, and Fenley is legally blind.

The center would be centrally located in downtown Lebanon and would be a place for adults with disabilities, their families, and caregivers. Fenley and Green envision Spark to be a ‘drop-off’ center, where people can come and go as they please.

“There are senior centers, teen centers, schools and day care for kids, and workplaces for most adults to spend their days. But what about the adults who don’t fit into any of those categories?,” said Green.

In order to operate “The Spark Community Center” needs to raise more than $100,000.
