Map Location Turning 22: Transitions & Adult Service Options

Narrative

The Cooperative for Human Services has over 30 years of successful experience serving young adults as they transition from school to adult services. This major life transition can be stressful for families as they are often faced with the reality that there is a lack of flexible, individualized support service options available and funding from MA Department of Developmental Disabilities, MA Rehabilitation Commission, MA Department of Public Health and other disability agencies is limited or unavailable.

To help individuals and family members to successfully respond to these funding challenges, CHS has developed Turning 22 housing and support service options for students with special needs and their family members. CHS clinicians and specialists help to assess their family member’s needs and then work with each family to develop a community living plan that meets their personal vision for the future.
