Living Resources has played an important role in our lives. Just over 3 years ago, we had no idea what our son David, who was diagnosed as being on the autism spectrum at age 3, would do when he graduated from high school on long Island in June 2016. Traditional college was not right for him, yet we knew he could leave home and gain some independence. Nothing we researched or looked at seemed to be the right fit.Luckily and thankfully we came across the College Experience Program at Saint Rose in my hometown of Albany, New York, and our search was over. My wife Jackie, David and I all felt great about the CEP opportunity when we visited and toured in December of 2015.

David thrived at CEP, and upon graduation wanted to stay and live in Albany … it’s amazing how things come full circle. He is doing well living with his roommate with ongoing support through the Transitions program. We are so grateful that in his current position at CEP, David is now able to give back, and help students strive towards success and independent living.
