When Randy Wolf learned his son Jack had been diagnosed with autism, questions started flooding his thoughts.

Where would he go to school? Would he ever have a job? Would he ever get married? Would he ever be able to say, ‘I love you’?

Randy and Kim Wolf, who founded the Turning Pointe Autism Foundation in 2007, aim to help families dealing with some of those same concerns through the group’s new Education and Career Development Center in Naperville.

The space, Randy Wolf said, is “a place to learn, a place to feel safe and a place for opportunities.”

Several hundred people turned out Thursday evening to celebrate the grand opening of the facility in the former Naperville Sun building at 1500 W. Ogden Ave., in close proximity to the Wolf family auto dealerships. (Photos: Turning Pointe celebrates new career center)

Turning Pointe partnered with OfficeMax and Walgreens to create mock stores and a mock warehouse in the center where it can train people with disabilities in job skills like stocking shelves and interacting with customers.
