By fostering a family environment where educational, social, and emotional needs of each student are addressed in a focused, holistic program, through partnership among staff, students, parents, board, and the community.
Brehm provides a support system, allowing for the development of individual transition plans that encompass realistic options for higher education, career development, and independent living skills, leading each student to a productive, fulfilling life in his/her community.
