The journey to adulthood starts here.

Every young person has a unique story.

That’s where we begin.

At Ivy Street, we support neurodivergent youth through a person-centered model that is driven by collaboration, a willingness to think big, and a commitment to really knowing the young people we serve. Across our educational, residential, and community-based programs, we support adolescents and young adults with disabilities by creating the therapeutic conditions that allow them to thrive. Our approach is evidence-based, trauma-informed, and laser-focused on strengthening healing, deepening community, building skills and accelerating motivation for a successful adulthood.
