Pana's Autism and Movement Project Recent Success and Trivia Night

The Autism and Movement Project in Pana is continuing to create opportunities for people with disabilities like the Brewin’ Hope Coffeehouse, a place of employment for those in the AAMP. Erica Matthews, Owner and Lead Instructor of the non-profit gives thanks to the community reception of the group and their support through donations and fundraising.

The AAMP is set to host a trivia night fundraiser on Saturday, May 4th at 6:00 p.m. at the Knights of Columbus, 213 South Locust Street in Pana.

The unique experiences offered by AAMP cause participants and their guardians to travel across counties to be involved. Matthews says that the monthly fee and fundraising efforts bring in sensory materials and scholarships to the AAMP members.


A recent purchase of a hanging walker now allows one wheelchair-bound member to move about the space with ease, joining his fellow AAMP peers on their feet. Matthews says this purchase was made possible by supportive area donations.


An uptick has been seen in doctor and school referrals to the AAMP group as positive results are seen time and time again, says Matthews.

Erica Matthews appeared as a guest on the WTIM Morning Show, live from the lobby of Peoples Bank and Trust in Downtown Pana.
