VT Digger: ‘A real sense of community’: All Brains Belong hosts virtual New Year’s Eve celebration

(Babette Stolk, 12/27/23)

The organization, which provides support to neurodivergent individuals, is hosting the event for people who do not feel comfortable in crowded spaces.

As 2023 comes to a close and Covid-19 indicators rise, New Year’s Eve parties may lead to a few sniffles for some, but for others, crowded rooms filled with germs are simply not an option. 

This is the case for 48-year-old Amy Noyes, who describes herself as a late-diagnosed autistic person and is a patient and part of the community advisory board at All Brains Belong, a two-year-old nonprofit community health organization in Montpelier.
