OUR STORY

Meeting the Need

Nolan’s Place was founded in 2018 by Sallie Graves and Jill Fellows. When Sallie’s energetic, loving, and intelligent son, Nolan, was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, the lack of services for children with autism in the Willmar area became increasingly evident. Together, Sallie and Jill, Nolan’s school-based occupational therapist, were called to bring support, love, and services to families affected by autism that otherwise have very limited access to these necessities.
