Mineola, NY - Nassau County Legislator Michael Giangregorio recently spoke at the Elija Foundation’s Conference on ‘A Pathway To Adulthood Using Self-Direction: Transitioning To Independence’, emphasizing the critical need for inclusive housing options for individuals with diverse needs as they transition into adulthood.

The conference provided a platform for stakeholders to discuss strategies for supporting individuals with Autism and other developmental differences as they navigate the transition to adulthood. Legislator Giangregorio’s remarks underscored the importance of collaboration between communities, parents, and government to ensure inclusive housing options are available.

Giangregorio, a devoted father of a child with Autism, expressed his honor in addressing the conference attendees on such a crucial topic. “Every person deserves a pathway to independence tailored to their unique journey,” stated Giangregorio. “Parents should feel empowered to make informed decisions, not pressured into choices before they're ready.”

During the conference, Trish Calandra was presented with the prestigious ‘Champion of Hope’ award, recognizing her tireless advocacy efforts that have positively impacted countless lives in the Autism community.
