PRINCE GEORGE - Pacific Autism Family Network (PAFN) opened it's first spoke location in British Columbia Saturday afternoon. 

The Prince George spoke is the first step in PAFN's larger provincial and eventual national strategy to provide families access to autism resources. 

Local co-founder Jordan Oliver's story began 8 years ago when she called her mom after her son was diagnosed with Autism in Vancouver. She said 'Mom we need something in Prince George'. From then on her and her husband were on a mission to bring support to the community. 

The ribbon on the new facility was cut Saturday. Locally, $100,000 was raised to help open the PAFN spoke in Prince George. 

"A place they can come to and feel safe, comforted and at home," says Jordan Oliver, co-founder and PAFN Advocate.
