TUSEN honors Maywood woman who helps underprivileged families with autistic children in Chicago


CHICAGO (TUSEN) — A Maywood woman is a TUSEN hero. The network honored Debra Vines for helping thousands of underprivileged families in the Chicago area who have a child with autism.

After struggling to raise her son Jason, who was diagnosed with autism at 18 months, founded the Answer Incorporated at Forest Park to help others.

We’ve done several stories about her organization over the years. Vines aims to provide services and answers to families.
