'He has a much fuller life than he would have at home'
The Seney family has been a part of the Clearbrook family for seven years.
Their son, Matt, has lived in one of the organization's Community Integrated Living Arrangement homes during those years.
"Clearbrook has provided a safe environment for our son. He has become more independent during the time he has been with Clearbrook," said Matt's dad, Brock. "He enjoys the interaction with his peers and he has a much fuller life than he would have at home."
The Seneys participated in Clearbrook's first Step It Up for Clearbrook event last year. They walked with Matt and felt it was a great experience seeing close to 500 members of the Clearbrook community out supporting the mission of the organization.
This year, they plan to fundraise and walk in honor of the Princeton CILA, where Matt lives.
"Clearbrook needs the support of the community now more than ever since the effect of the COVID pandemic has created a $1.3 million unexpected cost. Without help, programs and services that Clearbrook provides to people like our son may be in jeopardy," Brock said.
