About Chapel Haven West:
Chapel Haven West opened in 2008 in Tucson, AZ and provides residential transition and lifelong supports for adults 18+ with autism spectrum disorders and related social disabilities. The program is a satellite of Chapel Haven, Inc., in New Haven, Conn., founded in 1972 by parents and dedicated to providing lifelong supports for adults with cognitive and social disabilities.
Chapel Haven West focuses in four areas: independent living, self-determination, college/vocation and social communication skills. Students live in an apartment complex within walking distance to the University of Arizona. Along with learning how to manage an apartment, make friends and prepare for satisfying jobs in the workplace, the program’s close proximity to the University of Arizona provides a rich array of benefits for Chapel Haven West students. Chapel Haven West students enroll in credit-earning classes in social communication at the UA, and pursue college, recreational and job shadowing opportunities.

Harris Professor of Child Psychiatry, Pediatrics and Psychology at Yale University Child Study Center, School of Medicine and serves on Chapel Haven’s Board of Directors.
