Shire House is about creating lives that thrive.
Since the beginning of our program in 2012, our residential programs and services have helped over 40 young adults transition into adulthood.
Our Shire House Transitional Residential Program teaches our clients to understand and manage their diagnosis and any other underlying issues so to reach their particular level of self-management.
We provide guidance and support our clients through any educational or employment path they might have chosen to undertake. We run our residential program out of a large house with a co-ed college dorm setting which can accommodate six clients at a time.
Our residential program is supported by a Program Director, Social Mentors, and an Academic and Employment support Staff, a Physical Fitness Coach, any other professional deemed necessary, and a weekly Social Opportunity in which other young adults from within our Autism community participate.
Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we have never had to turn anyone away because of their inability to pay our fees for the residential program.
We do not provide full scholarships, as we feel that the approved applicant should be able to pay something in order to be aware of their and/or their parents' investment and commitment.
We are raising $54,000 which would cover a 50% scholarship for two approved clients for one full year.
Thank you so much,
