“My son, who has Asperger’s and is highly anxious, first started going to NOCS 4 years ago after a life of much time spent at home, including a prolonged time out of school which left him with very low self-esteem.  After finding NOCS, he is now, quite literally, a different person.  Finding friends of a like mind, a wonderful mentor in Noc and things to do that he really enjoys, he is regularly attending the various activities, a miracle in itself.  Now having so much more confidence, he helps out weekly at the shop, improving his self-esteem immensely. Noc's support has been unwavering and instrumental in helping him to achieve this.”
