New Directions helps students attend universities, community colleges, and technical and vocational schools.Our staff works closely with students to enhance their transitions. We provide support for each student’s unique needs and goals.Students live independently in apartments located within the same living space as the New Directions offices/staff and receive intensive support to achieve their goals.
