The Cottages allow for semi-supervised living quarters with a shared living area, kitchen and laundry facilities. While medical and counseling services continue through this phase, each resident transitions to an individually, customized education curriculum, with the end goal of establishing a career path. This is accomplished through GED training, advanced education courses, vocational training and individual tutoring. In addition, residents spend more time with their peers learning and practicing life skills, such as, time management, meal preparation, planning and budgeting . . . All the while striving for restoration in multiple areas.
