Located carefully within communities, our programs have close access to shopping, recreation centers, schools and public transit. (Currently modified due to COVID-19)
Many locations include a sensory room designed for enjoyment with special lighting, music and objects that meet individual and group needs.
Space to move, exercise and play is an essential part of our days that’s why each location includes a gym, exercise room or dance studio on site.
Parks, adjacent green space, school playgrounds, walking trails or lakes can be found within walking distance of our program locations.
Full kitchens at every site include a sink, stove, fridge and appliances which are essential program features that meet health and safety standards.
Everyone has the right to feel accepted and understood, valued and purposeful. Come find your place of belonging and let your light shine.
