Participants enjoy their own private bedroom in one of four four-bedroom suites. They experience career services ranging from volunteer work and internships to community employment. Community life, building amenities/features, a midtown location with access to public transportation and Learn4Independence course work enable individuals to build their life and work skills before moving on to a more independent living environment in year 2.
Participants relocate to an off-site property developed in 2014 by the Foundation for Senior Living (FSL) in collaboration with First Place. This multigenerational housing property in Phoenix co-locates nine two-bedroom apartments for adults with autism with senior residents who do not have autism. Participants complete the Learn4Independence curriculum, continue transition planning and receive a certificate in life skills from GateWay Community College.
