LIFE WITHOUT LIMITS

MISSION:
All young adults need to prepare as they enter their adult lives.  Each young adult has individual strengths, preferences, interests, and goals which will lead him\her down the path of independence.  Our 18-21 year old program will focus on preparing young adults with disabilities for life after high school graduation.
