Offering a continuum of services from education to independent living, the Light House is dedicated to fostering social, emotional, and cognitive development for lifelong independence.

CURRENT INITATIVES

HOUSING OPPORTUNITES

For over 10 years, The Light House Life Campus has helped individuals with Autism transition into semi-supportive and independent living arrangements. With various sites located in southeastern Connecticut, The Light House has managed to develop a community of ‘like minded’ individuals that continue to support one another in lasting friendships.

THE FRIENDS PROGRAM

Join old friends and new this year as we celebrate our 13th year of programming. Friends is a social skills group for Middle and High School students on the Autism Spectrum that provides instruction in social skills, independent living skills, and community engagement.

LH Works

The Light House is growing again to meet the needs of post high school graduates. LH Works provides social and vocational experiences for job seekers who currently do not reach the benchmarks for competitive employment. Comprised of a progressive, multi-year program, LH Works empowers individuals to create their own pathways to employment and independent living.
