1/17/2017 – Roommate Wanted.  I have a 19 year old high – functioning Autistic (Level 2) son. Our family moved to Wake Forest in June of 2016. I am in the process of trying to get my son help with funding for housing. Until this can be accomplished, we are looking for a male who would be interested in becoming a friend to my son and possibly before this year is over, will become a roommate. A residence has not been established at this time either. My son currently works part-time at Publix grocery in Wake Forest. He attends the Richland Creek Community Church. He loves playing video games, drawing and writing stories. My priority is finding a roommate, but finding someone (male or female) in his age group at this time to spend time with would also be a plus! Thank you, K. Pugh.

Roomates wanted for a Group Home under Development! We are actively looking to purchase a home that we would turn over to an agency to run.  Our 18 year old son , Thomas would live there.
