Transitions is a day program that caters to each individual’s personal goals with a heavy focus on community inclusion and preparing for community employment or post-secondary education. Participants are encouraged to pursue employment goals, explore education opportunities, and learn independent living skills.
While other organizations may consider transition-age individuals to be those leaving high school, Easterseals Arc believes that individuals can achieve greater independence at any age. Therefore, our Transitions program serves any individual 18 or older who is unsure of their career or education pathway.
Daily activities are developed to address specific participant goals for steps toward community employment and increased independence.
Hours: 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, except major holidays.
Participant-to-staff ratios: Groups have ratios of 10-to-1 or 4-to-1 based on participant needs.
Transportation: Easterseals Arc can provide transportation to and from the facility for a limited number of individuals. However, we can give you information regarding transportation services.
Medical Care: All staff are CPR-certified and trained on first aid and dispensing medication. Staff also are trained on each individual’s specific information. Nurses are accessible in emergencies.
Accreditation: Transitions is a CARF-accredited program.
