With the help of New Directions, young adults who previously failed to thrive are experiencing independence for the first time in their lives.
We provide young adults with the opportunity to pursue higher education, vocational goals, and get coordinated support during their transition into independence.
New Directions helps students attend universities, community colleges, and technical/vocational schools. Our staff work closely with students and to provide support for each student’s unique needs and goals. Students live independently in apartments located in close proximity to the New Directions professional offices and receive intensive support to help achieve their goals. New Directions also supports students in developing well-rounded interpersonal skills, with their academic pursuits, in developing successful social interactions, in their preparation for the workforce, and in mastering the life skills needed to live independently.
