Transitioning into adulthood
Ours is a life-long commitment with a family and we're always here to share our strength and experience all along the way. Key to our program philosophy is full inclusion and involvement in the community at large. To that end, we encourage families to participate with their local schools and to avail themselves of neighborhood resources. Our role is to serve as a guide to opportunities and activities, as well as provide support and counseling as needed.
Some of the services include:
