Chapel Haven

UPDATED: April 15, 2022

Chapel Haven offers a wide variety of program options for adults who are 18 and older and seeking a happy, independent life!

Our core residential programs are the REACH and Asperger Syndrome Adult Transition (ASAT) programs, based at our flourishing campus in New Haven, CT. We also offer day programming, weekend recreation, social communication therapy, structured day programs and a host of other options, both for our own graduates and for those outside the Chapel Haven community seeking services.

Any family seeking to enroll in one of our services starts first by inquiring through the Chapel Haven Office of Admissions. You can request literature by clicking either link:

Our admissions process is designed to give the applicant and family a comprehensive view of Chapel Haven’s programs. The Admissions team will ask each inquiring family to provide intake materials, such as recent psychological / neuropsychological and functional adaptive evaluations, IEPS and vocational assessments.

All of these documents can be easily uploaded through our online application process and shared with our admissions team by clicking here. Next, the prospective applicant and interested parties are invited for a campus tour and interview. The REACH and ASAT admissions processes allow the applicant to spend time within the program to help familiarize them with our programming. Once accepted, the family typically will be asked to provide an advance deposit to hold a residential slot. Tuition is billed either twice a year or quarterly, depending on a family’s preference.

Applicants are:

  • 18 years of age and older, with cognitive disabilities/autism spectrum disorders
  • High school graduates or still completing high school credits through their IEPs
  • Emotionally and behaviorally stable
  • motivated to eventually transition into independent and productive lives
