“I remember walking around and growing quite emotional the more I saw and heard about the space. It’s such a well-thought out concept with rooms that people can go to in and sit in by themselves – to a more sociable lounge.” – Mahlia Amatina, describing her first time visiting Felicity House
Mahlia Amatina is an award-winning artist who received an autism diagnosis in 2015. She was inspired by her diagnosis to create art that reflects the creativity and multi-sensory experience of neurodiversity. A few months ago, Mahlia had the opportunity to visit Felicity House and wrote about it on her blog. Mahlia describes Felicity House as a sanctuary away from the bustling streets of New York.
