Guides young adults with disabilities onto paths of self sufficiency
CaPROMISE was designed to address the primary barriers to successful employment for transitioning youth with disabilities on SSI. This project identifies youth ages 14-26 who are SSI recipients and instructs their families on how they can self-advocate to receive usual typical services plus PROMISE augmented services.
At the end of our 6 year involvement, we help the family transition off of SSI, and into greater self-sufficiency.
