The population of people who are able to participate in this program may not fit such rigid criterion that is required to be met of other programs within our community.  Our team will work to establish relationships with the young adults, their families, their perhaps “constructed families”, peers, and all available support systems. The young adults themselves will of play the biggest role in their own development and growth.  Transitional treatment and intervention helps young adults to graduate school, continue education, establish; grow and maintain friendships, promote self discovery and independence, find and sustain meaningful employment, encourage positive home placement, living a healthy, positive life and being a confident and beneficial member of our community.
