Chapel Haven West's mission, to teach adults with developmental and social disabilities to live independent and productive lives--is just the beginning of the Chapel Haven philosophy, a philosophy that is evident in every aspect of programming and daily living.
We believe in guiding each one of our students toward his/her individual vision for success, and once determined, we support that vision in ways that will make it attainable.
We believe that each person has the right to determine his/her life plan, with the support and guidance of their parents and the Chapel Haven Team, and it is our mission to support that plan in every way we can.
Chapel Haven West provides residential transition and lifelong supports for adults 18+ with mild developmental disabilities and those on the autism spectrum.
Our students are the stars of the show;-)
Students live in an apartment complex within walking distance to the University of Arizona. They learn real-life skills like cooking, budgeting, grocery shopping and doing laundry...and even being interviewed on TV!
