Making It Happen encourages people to acquire the necessary skills and confidence for lifelong learning and growth.
This outcome-based program is designed to assist adults ages 18 – 28 to acquire the skills necessary to transition from school to life in the community.
Participants will work with their transition coach, family, friends, and community connections to develop skills to achieve goals and define their independence. Individualized supports are developed, based on intensive goal-setting and planning designed to build connections to natural support networks.
The Making It Happen Program operates from 101 Stewart Street in Chatham.
