Paths for Positive Adulting - Support Group for Parents
Do you have a young adult (ages 18-30) in your life who needs extra help finding their path to adulthood? You are not alone!
We call the process Positive Adulting! Adulting, yes not a real word, is meant to infer that there is a series of best practices and helpful actions taken to find one’s path towards employment, housing, social connection, and independence.
Many of our young adults with learning disabilities, mental health, and/or high functioning Autism live at home with their families. They aren’t Regional Center clients so it's up to their parents to guide them as best they can. The desire for independence may be difficult to meet in stressful, high priced, Silicon Valley. OR, these young adults may become so comfortable at home that they aren't considering leaving. So much for a parent's dream of empty nesting!
This is unchartered territory for most of us as parents. How can we help our young adults gain the tools and motivation needed to successfully launch their independent lives? Come and meet other parents who are going through the same process!
This new parent support group starting from scratch in Spring 2019. Together, we will identify common goals and perceived obstacles in order to find appropriate information and resources. Let’s learn together and from each other as we work to find ways to help our young adults on their Paths to Positive Adulting!
The group meets on the 4th Tuesday of each month from 7-8:30 at PHP in the Sobrato Center for Nonprofits, San Jose.
Zoom conferencing is an option for those who cannot attend in person. Contact Marlee if you want to join the meeting virtually.
