For Chas, A More Independent Adulthood Within Reach

Posted: November 2, 2017

Chasitie attended The HeartShare School for children with autism. She also lived at the Children’s Residence next door. During her time there, Chas developed her interests and sense of self. She’s an avid music lover and dancer. Chas also expresses that energy through fitness, including Zumba. During summers, she enjoys trips to the beach and Hershey Park, PA. Now age 21, she is aging out of the program and is ready to transition to the next part of her young adult life. As Chas transitions out of HeartShare’s care, her mother is confident about her more independent future. “Chas will be living in a supported apartment and can mostly take care of herself. I am so proud of her,” her mom said.
