For the last few weeks, I've been covering benefits, from people who have cancer, to supporting people who were killed and hurt during the Boston Marathon.

While each benefit has been different, the spirit of the Crossroads people reflects the same desire to help others in need. During times of tragic incidents, support is needed for others, but help is out there at other times, too.

Brenda Nelson works for an educational training program called Together Everyone Achieves More Project Partners Resource Area. She has been invested in helping parents understand children who have autism. She recently had a workshop to enlighten people about how to care for people with autism. She has a child who is dealing with a form of autism.

While the workshop has passed, Nelson remains committed to helping others. This weekend, Nelson will host a special education workshop Saturday to help people in the Crossroads.

The month of April is Autism Awareness Month, but it's nice for people to recognize that a month is not particularly essential to help someone in need.
