My Place To Be was founded with families coming together for a common good of advocating for families in need. As we have grown we provide services to help families individually and as a whole.
Family Support Group - the first Thursday of every month is our parent support group meeting from 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM Your child does not need any specific diagnosis to join us. This group is for all families working together to support and embrace one another when the need arises. This is a nonjudgemental group of parents and we all understand the challenges of raising children in today's world.
IEP and ETR Assistance - Going into a school meeting can be overwhelming and very stressful for parents. We offer a program to review and go to these meetings with families as an extra support.
Enrichment Programs - Often we provide guest speakers and a parent enrichment program teaching conscious parenting options for families.
Positive Parent Transformational Series - Conscious Parenting classes to help encourage parents and teachers to look at behaviors as a form of communication, where we learn to help our children out of difficult moments.
For students who may have social emotional or academic challenges they may need additional prep time to get ready for the next step. This will be the third year for our transitions camp and we have seen some great outcomes preparing our students. This year we will be doing 2 weeks.
June 18th - June 22nd and July 16th - July 20th.
These are mini life boot camp on looking at what we really want to do in life. Looking at aptitude tests and seeing what areas are best suited for the next step. If college is where we want to go looking at planning on what happens in high school to get us ready. If we want to go to trade school or right into job force what do we need to do to hold down a job. How do you write a resume and fill out an application. What social skills do we need to move forward in life.
How do we go to the grocery store, create a budget, how much money do we need to make to live on our own? Want a car? What do you have to do to be a responsible car owner? License, insurance, gas and maintenance all those things that we don't think about. Life can be hard for our students but if we can prepare them for some of these challenges and have them thinking about the next step they will do great!
Camp starts daily at 9:30 and goes to 3:30; Cost is $150 for the week. (Autism Scholarship and Jon Peterson Scholarship can be used for these camps) My Place to Be also has additional scholarships available to families in need.

All Children need a little help, a little hope and someone who believes in them
