The PREPARATION, TRANSITION & INDEPENDENT LIVING SERVICES program is designed to provide you support and guidance with the challenges of becoming independent. A PALS Specialist works with you one-on-one to help assess your strengths and abilities, as well as assist you in identifying your personal vision for becoming a successful independent adult.

Each of you have different situations and needs—the PALS Specialist will make sure your plan and the work you do is directed to your specific needs, making it unique to you.

If you’re not sure of what you want to do with your life—that’s OK. Take some time and think about how you envision your future. Vision begins with desire, but it doesn’t end there. Your vision for your future will begin to emerge as you think about what you most enjoy doing and what talents you most enjoy using.

“My PALS Specialist helped me build a budget so I could manage my money more efficiently and pay my bills on my own. They helped me get everything in order when I was applying for colleges and scholarships. My PALS Specialist helped me with filling out my FAFSA and filling my taxes. My Specialist always returned my calls or emails within the same day.”   ~ Diedra
