The Next Stop Foundation is a nonprofit organization in Suwanee, Georgia, that provides social, recreational, and learning opportunities to high functioning adults with special needs.
“We are very happy with The Next Stop program for its focus on life skills, social interaction and in general – fun! Ian enjoys the zumba and music sessions and always talks about the dishes they prepared; he likes people and really enjoys being around a group that shows interest in him. Without TNS, Ian would be spending time at home alone because we are at work, so The Next Stop is critical for Ian’s well being and for us as well. We highly recommend The Next Stop for anyone interested in an organized, safe and fun place for adults with special needs.” – Lisa and Ricardo
Ian lives with his sister Lisa, brother in law Ricardo, and niece Ella.
I knew Anna loved The Next Stop when she started waking up at daybreak to be ready for the 1:00 p.m. start time. I would find her fully dressed, ready and waiting on the stairs at about 10:00 a.m. When I remind her that she has plenty of time, she responds that she wants to be sure she is ready on time. Thank you, Next Stop, for providing a place where she is so comfortable, and where she continues to learn and be involved with her peers! Thank you for involving varied support folks to enhance and maintain social, motor, and mental development! – Sally

“Regardless of intellect or abilities every person needs to continue to grow, develop interests and be connected with other people. TNS allows Natalie to regularly gather with friends sharing in games and activities, and different recipes. TNS weaves current events into scheduled activities to allows another avenue for her to stay actively involved in the world around her. Shared experiences through these various activities has allow Natalie to learn more about her interests while appreciating other members thoughts and experiences which builds stronger friendships and the ability to better relate to other people in her life.” – Brian and Paula

“My son Brian has been attending The Next Stop for 4 years now. I love that he has a place to go where he can express his creativity, be it in the kitchen or in a music class, be with his peers, and just be part of a community.” – Kim
