  Triangle, Inc. held an open house for a new program for adults with autism, or neurodiverse, at their remodeled location in downtown Malden on Wednesday. Triangle, Inc. is a 50-year-old nonprofit based in Malden that serves people with disabilities and their families. It partnered with the Commonwealth to develop and design a new program, the Prism Program, that offers a variety of employment, job training, independent living and social skills programs for autistic, transition-age young adults. This ground-breaking program and space is designed for young adults with autism who have aged out of the public school system at 22 years old and now need a pathway to independent living. The Prism Program is a one-of-a-kind model that serves young autistic adults with individualized services and provides a judgement-free zone to help members build social bonds with their peers.

  Mayor Gary Christenson and State Representatives Paul Donato and Kate Lipper-Garabedian were in attendance.

Triangle, Inc. Chief Executive Officer Coleman Nee thanked donors for their support.
