21 and Able Project

PEAL Center’s 21 and Able Project, Powered by United Way helps young adults with disabilities transition smoothly from the last day of high school to the first day of adult life by increasing employment, housing opportunities and other support.

21 and Able has recently gone statewide in Pennsylvania.

PEAL works with families:

  • Providing drop in sessions for support and information, training and individual support for transition
  • Connecting families, especially for young adults with the most significant disabilities and complex needs to the community supports and services they need.
  • Educating policymakers about the needs of young adults in transition to adulthood.

Helping You Plan for the Future:

Our new PA Planning for the Future Checklist is intended as a resource for students (with support from their families, schools, and supporting agency professionals) to review and help provide information and suggestions to guide the transition process for students with disabilities, grades 7 – 12, (ages 14 up to 22nd birthday).
