In 1998 a group of parents came together, concerned with the lack of post secondary options and collaborated to form Moving Forward. A unique residential program where young adults with learning disabilities enjoy productive, fulfilling and healthy lives within a caring and safe community made up of fellow residents, trained staff members, and various representatives of volunteer organizations and businesses in the greater Napa community.
To date, nearly one hundred young adults, ranging in age from 18 to 37, have participated in our program. Many have progressed so much as to be able to maintain their own home, jobs, friendships, relationships, and their connection to the Moving Forward community through ongoing classes, social activities and individualized case management services. We are three miles from the Napa Valley College.
