We believe that transitional living, our Community Program , is the best choice for gaining independent living skills. What starts as a dream statement often becomes a tangible, meaningful reality. For some, it means attending college or full-time employment. For all, it means better-coping skills and a healthier approach to everyday living. Residents live in furnished, mixed-gender transitional homes with private bedrooms, sharing household chores, cooking, and grocery shopping.
