Trey has loved Next Stop from day one, and being able to stay in touch with his Next Stop family during the COVID-19 pandemic has made all the difference for him. The Next Stop immediately began Zoom groups for their members and reminded them that they are not "stuck" at home but "safe" at home. Hearing that message and being with his friends online, has helped him to better understand the situation and deal with his emotions. Listening to his conversations and helping him with his Next Stop projects and activities has helped us understand his perspective and has created a new kind of conversation in our house. We are forever grateful to The Next Stop team!

Check out all of the fun at The Next Stop!
