Chapel Haven West will hold its 2018 Commencement Ceremony, celebrating the amazing achievements of our graduating students., on Saturday, June 9, 2018, at 10:30 a.m. in Tucson, AZ.

The ceremony will take place at the University of Arizona, in the Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences Building. It’s notable that the commencement takes place on the campus of the University of Arizona, since All Chapel Haven West students spend two years in college-level social communication classes overseen by the speech-language pathologists at CHW in the speech-language department at the university. In addition, Chapel Haven West teaches other aspects of its core curriculum at the university.

RSVP’s are kindly requested. Please email or call her at (520) 624-9378, ext. 115.

Congratulations to Alex Welch, Josh Fielding-Singh, Josh Gordon, Lauren Damuth and Philip Jones.

The Class of 2018, Chapel Haven West – congrats!

The ceremony will include remarks from 2017 Chapel Haven West Graduate Brian Puffer, who lives independently now in Tucson and works at the Veteran’s Administration Hospital. The keynote speaker will be Anthony Aldinger of Mr. Nature’s Music Garden. To RSVP, please contact Carrie Crowther at or (520) 624-9378, ext. 115.

At the commencement, each student will be honored for major achievements in learning life skills, navigating work internships, completing college-level academic work and learning to live in an apartment, independently of parents. As is true for most Chapel Haven grads, most of the students are choosing to stay on in Tucson as part of Chapel Haven West’s supported living program, where they will take advantage of “a la carte” supports from Chapel Haven West as they continue on with independent, adult lives.

Chapel Haven President Michael Storz will be on hand for remarks and to present each graduate with their certificate of completion.

Congrats to all, we are so proud of you! To learn more about Chapel Haven West, contact
