HOUSING OPPORTUNITES

For over 8 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.
