Teenagers with developmental disabilities typically have not been offered the same opportunities as their peers without disabilities. They often have limited opportunities to develop interpersonal relationships outside of their families. Through our Youth Resources, we create an atmosphere for teens with developmental disabilities and their peers where mutual, natural friendships are fostered and valued, disabilities are accepted, individual differences and unique capabilities are celebrated and where community resources are explored. We place an emphasis on encouraging participants to self-direct whenever possible, while developing the skills necessary to successfully and safely engage in our community and explore new places.
Please note that there may be a wait list for Youth Resources’ Teen services.
