Supportive housing for adults with autism, Down syndrome and other neurodiversities with all the benefits of community-connected, independent living.

Transition Academy

A structured clinical program designed for adults with autism that helps build crucial independent living and career-readiness skills.
“Everything is very black and white...but they also help us see the gray areas of things. No one pushes us too far outside of our comfort zone while still helping us become independent so eventually we can live on our own, which I think is a really good avenue for a lot of us.”
Sara, First Place–Phoenix Resident
