( — February 3, 2014) Florence, MA — For more than 40 years Nonotuck Resource Associates has helped transform the lives of hundreds of people with intellectual and physical disabilities by offering the personalized service of shared living and Adult Family Care (AFC). In February, Nonotuck Chief Operations Officer Richard French will share Nonotuck’s story on Worcester public access WCCA Channel 13’s “Soap Box” program, hosted by Mauro DePasquale, on February 5 at 9:30pm.


Joining French on the program will be Michael Molony, CEO of Horace Mann Educational Associates, a company that provides innovative services in schools, at work, at home and the community for nearly 3800 children and adults with developmental disabilities. The two will be discussing the history and values of their respective organizations, the services both companies offer and the unique collaboration between the two organizations.


“While we’ve made great strides, creating awareness about programs like shared living and adult family care is an ongoing challenge,” said George Fleischner, executive director of Nonotuck Resources, Inc. “We are grateful to Mr. DePasquale for giving us the opportunity to share the benefits of these programs with a larger audience in the greater Worcester area.”


In addition, Molony will be discussing the rise in cases of children diagnosed with autism and issues associated with raising a child with autism.


Added Fleischner, “Viewers will benefit not only from learning about our two companies and what we do but how and where families can find help for their loved ones.”


Nonotuck offers Shared Living, Adult Family Care and Day Services for families who choose to care for their loved ones suffering with Alzheimer’s, autism, brain injuries, cancer, muscular dystrophy and other intellectual and physical disabilities at home. Based in Florence, Nonotuck has offices in Central and Western Massachusetts as well as on Boston’s South Shore and on Cape Cod.
