Hi, I am wondering if anyone has experience with New Directions for Young Adults in Pleasant Hill - the post from a year+ ago only had one reply. I'm wondering about the costs of this program & how much support kids got. Also if you had a child with special needs attend the program I'm curious about their experience. thank you!
We're looking into the program New Directions for Young Adults out in Pleasant Hill, CA for our almost 18 y.o. kid. Does anyone know anything about this program? Have your kids gone there?...or kids of friends?
We are looking for a program to support our kid in community college and to help them prepare for 4 year college--so I'd appreciate referrals to any other programs you know of, as well.
My 20 yr old daughter attends New Directions. She has been there for about 7 mos. and is making good progress at becoming more independent. A year ago she sat on her bed all day playing video games. Now she takes a couple of classes at DVC, volunteers at the animal shelter and is looking for a job. The program has just enough structure and the staff is good. I recommend taking the tour.
