The Hope Source, founded in 2007 by Julie Gordon, emerged as a sanctuary for families navigating autism's complexities. Initially rooted in counseling parents of autistic children, Julie's journey evolved when she realized the need for a more holistic approach. Adapting as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, she expanded services, establishing a nurturing center for children, forging educational partnerships, and creating a vocational lab. Under Julie's guidance, The Hope Source grew exponentially, impacting numerous families and graduating many from comprehensive programs. The organization's success stemmed from Julie's vision, her team's dedication, and a commitment to holistic support, culminating in transformative initiatives like the Purpose Project and expansion into outpatient services, reflecting gratitude for the impactful moments shared with clients and families.
