Our Services

Our goal in providing Transition Support Services (one-on-one) and Transition Empowerment Classes (for groups) to Youth and Adults with Disabilities is to provide the most relevant information and insights in our knowledge and experiences. We utilize the best tools and methods available to us and to help our clients navigate their transition and to motivate our clients to take actions under their Individualized Plan for Employment (IPE). The IPE is developed and re-visited during the course of our services and in collaboration with the client and his/her parent or caregiver. The primary focus remains on the client. Our ultimate goal is to have a client that is a citizen, empowered as a job seeker and self-aware of his/her interests and skills. We hope that our clients will soon serve as productive and contributing members of our society!
