After graduation, join our community!

 Transitioning your student into the real world: After graduation, join our community. Chapel Haven Schleifer Center, Inc. is not simply a school or independent living program. We are a large and vibrant adult community offering supports for a lifetime for those who choose that route. Eighty-five percent of the families who choose Chapel Haven for a beginning away-from-home residential experience stay on after graduation and joined our Supported Living Community!

All three of our core residential programs (REACH, ASAT and Chapel Haven West) offer continuing supports after an individual has completed the residential program. We are experts at helping our adults settle into an apartment, often with other Chapel Haven graduates, find jobs, enjoy continuing social/recreation on the weekend and receive targeted life skills supports to continue with the journey to independence. In addition, Chapel Haven is available to adults outside our community who have some experience with independent living and are seeking a vibrant adult community to join, whether for day programming, enrichment classes, social recreation on the weekend or help with independent living.
