HIGHLIGHTS FOR THE MONTHS OF MARCH AND APRIL 2022
March and April were very busy months for Solomon’s Porch Light. We are delighted to say that the word is spreading, and SPL’s name is being recognized more and more. We have several individuals on our waiting list to be featured on our website for the next few years. We look forward in working with each one of them to provide the support they need to grow their endeavors. In addition, we are excited to explore opportunities in working with other non-profits to provide training in transitioning from school years to adults.
In April, SPL successfully raised money for Grant Manier to help him during these difficult times. Grant was Solomon’s Porch Light first featured entrepreneur. In addition to the SPL website, Grant’s artwork was also featured at Humble Good Oil Day Fair and the Earth Day’s Celebration in Houston. Two of his beautiful art masterpieces were raffled off to two very lucky winners. The drawing was held on April 15, 2022, and their names are listed below.
Thank you to all that purchased tickets and we will continue to raise money for Grant on our website. We are also excited to announce that we will be sponsoring several more raffles of Grant’s beautiful art pieces in the future.
Please visit Grant’s website to support him during his journey. Solomon Porch Light will continue to support and pray for his recovery.
As always, we welcome your feedback, and thank you for being a valued supporter.

Autism and Cancer is a Double Meltdown
In 2021, Eco-Artist Grant Maniér, age 25, living with autism, started a new adventure moving from Texas to Wisconsin on the road to independence to pursue his talents in art, graphic design, acting, and employment. Grant was looking forward to his new job as a Behavioral Technician at the Treffert Center, a school for autism students.
Before leaving Texas, Grant began experiencing a persistent on-and-off cough. Grant and his mom, Julie Coy, assumed the cough was allergies. Doctors suggested allergy medicine. Arriving in Wisconsin, Grant’s allergies exacerbated in November. After extensive testing, doctors diagnosed Grant with Stage 2 Hodgkin Lymphoma Cancer.
“Autism has been a battle maintaining Grant’s meltdowns,” said Julie. “Now living with cancer, we hope for a meltdown, a tumor meltdown. I cannot help but worry if the combination of Autism and Cancer will take a toll on Grant’s positive mindset and energy.”
Grant continues with his art therapy. He’s looking forward to the day he will share his comeback story.
Grant is grateful to receive speedy recovery emails, social media posts, and cards. Grant loves cards! Send to:
