Transition house in the works at LP High School

Posted by wlpo on November 11, 2013

The shift from teenager to adult is shaky for everyone but it can be more challenging for people who have disabilities.  If you have a teenager with a disability, LP High School is holding a meeting Tuesday to talk about plans for a transition house.

They’re calling it the Building Dreams…Building Futures” Campaign Launch.  The transition program is for 18-22 year-olds with disabilities.  It helps them learn life skills so they can learn independently. 

They have a mock apartment in the school building but the new house would actually be just that, a house built on property the school owns near the school.

The meeting is at 6:30pm Tuesday in the auditorium.
