Transition planning for young adults with disabilities often takes shape in their final years of high school.  Parents, teachers and social connections are vital during this time as their support and knowledge help to shape the journey that lies ahead.  The journey to adulthood and independence is life changing.  When planning the final transition, it is important to consider not only the youth’s needs for independence, but their preference for living arrangements, employment and relationships.  Freedom Resource Center offers Independent Living Skills classes aimed at fostering growth in a number of areas such as:

  • Healthy Relationships,
  • Living Well Series
  • Money Smart
  • Organizing and Decluttering Your Life
  • Preparing for the Permit
  • Job Smart

Each class provides the tools and knowledge necessary to be successful and thrive.  Freedom Resource Center also works collaboratively with the Minnesota Department of Vocational Rehabilitation and a number of schools in Minnesota to offer Pre-Employment Transition Services (Pre-ETS).  Trainings covering self-advocacy and job exploration are also available to help guide the journey to independence.
