Path to Independence

Developing Meaningful Independence

Our Path To Independence (P2I) adult day program supports young adults (ages 18-30) as they develop the skills necessary for living a more independent life. That starts with daily living skills, eventually incorporates on-the-job vocational training, and potentially includes facilitating employment opportunities.

From the minute each participant joins Mychal’s family, we encourage and support them on their Path to Independence! We work with each adult (participant) and their support team (parents, guardians, service coordinators, counselors, etc.) to ensure that there is a firm foundation of support to build upon. We believe in a team effort to accomplish goals and dreams!
