For children and young adults seeking residential or day programs, there is a team of caring professionals who understand the frustration and emotional and social trauma experienced by each new student.
New students find other young people like themselves and buildings that are totally accessible.
Every class is open to them, including art and music.
Their self-esteem soars.
They begin to experience opportunities, rather than limitations.
For many, this is a major turning point in their lives.
