Trey's Transition believes in the uniqueness, worth, dignity, and right to self-determination of every individual. The program will provide day care for young adults with disabilities. To strive to prepare, empower, and support young adults to participate as much as possible to their potential in their home, school and community.

Some young adults have the potential to attend post high school or vocational programs i.e. vocational rehabilitation, technical schools, or college. They need additional assistance and supervision to prepare them of post graduate studies. Many of them remain @ home or attend one of a handful of day programs in the community to meet their needs i.e. vocational rehabilitation, or other day treatment programs for adults.
