After two years of experience in creating a residential program for providing the learning experiences needed by young adults on the spectrum to become more independent and self-sufficient, we would like to establish more homes in other communities to meet this growing need. We are looking for partners with personal development programs or interventions who would be interested in working with us to establish a residential program utilizing their intervention, and located in their community. We would set up the residence in a home with sufficient rooms for at least 4 or 5 residents, and for at least 3 or 4 live-in staff. We would also provide the infrastructure for running the house, and hire the live-in staff to guide and mentor the residents toward greater independence.
We are looking for partners who can provide the following components of a new residential program:
Personal development program or intervention already shown to support the growth of young adults with autism or other disability towards greater independence and self-sufficiency.
Trained individuals who are willing to work as live-in staff at the residence and provide the day-to day guidance and mentoring of residents using the development program or intervention.
Clients who are motivated and ready to work on their independence and self-sufficiency, and have the financial means to move into a residential program with the supports needed to achieve these goals.
I would like to explore the possibility of setting up a transition home at a location near you, or where you think we could find the clients (young adults with autism or related disabilities) and staff (certified providers or providers-in-training) who would be interested in working together in a residential program. Resident clients could master the skills required to become more independent and self-sufficient. Trained full-time, live-in staff could receive a salary along with free room & board, and other benefits, all supported from the fees paid by families who send their young adult son or daughter to the home.
