My son became a HipSter about 6 months ago and both Mom and Dad are so pleased how he has responded to the positive environment. He was a bit apprehensive the first month but he began to really come out of his shell. I am certain it is due to the total acceptance he encounters with his peers and staff. He has stated goals and receives a quarterly "report card" detailing his progress, which helps us at home reinforce stated goals.

This is the best program I have ever seen. My sister has been involved in several other programs but this far exceeds any of the others. I feel so blessed to have My Possibilities available to her. Janice J

Our daughternhasnbeen attending MyPossibilities during school breaks for two years. All the staff are genuinely interested in the HIPsters. - it's not just a job to them. they are a truly dedicated group of people.

The programming gets better and better. I especially appreciate the art program - our daughter has learned so much there.

MyPossibilities gets 5 stars from our whole family.

My Possibilities is doing fantastic work in helping special needs adults reach their fullest potential. Their programs help build work and independence skills, provide social and enrichment activities as well as provide a positive daily environment for these special people. My son has been attending their MP University program and Explore program for several years and has made tremendous progress. He loves attending the program.

When I started at my possibilities my goal was to get a job. After a year my possibilities has made my goal come true and help me want to go back to college to get my degree in special education. If it weren't for them I feel like I wouldn't have wanted to go back to school.

My Possibilities staff and its rich and innovative program has enabled my adult daughter to participate in daily activities that foster her growth in so many areas like independence, assertiveness, self esteem, and community involvement.
The staff is always focused on helping all attendees achieve and explore, hence the same words describe their phenomenal daily program.
We are committed to supporting My Possibilities for the future and we thank them!

My son is 23 and is autistic. He attended My Possibilities for two summers while he was in his post-high school program and he's returning now as a full time "Hipster". We love the program and we don't know what we would do without it. The staff always works individually with all the Hipsters to help them reach their full potential. There is so much variety in their daily schedule. My Possibilities offers vocational training, daily living skills, a book club, fitness and yoga classes, and outings in the community. It is a place my son can go where I know he's growing and learning every day and being challenged to interact more with others. The best thing is that the staff there believes in my son and what he is capable if accomplishing. I'm so glad My Possibilities is a part of our community and I am indebted to the staff and the directors who had the vision and saw the need to create this wonderful program.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Clone it! Maybe someday My Possibilities can add additional locations.

My daughter, who is 29 years old, attends MyPossibilities. She has gained so much independence and confidence since starting the program! The caregivers are WONDERFULLY patient with the clients and I never worry that Amber is being mistreated or being ignored. The staff goes above and beyond to make our adult disabled children feel as valued as everyone else in the community. Thanks MP!
