Milestones participants are 18 to 27 years old or older and are transferring from an emotional growth experience, a traditional boarding school, or a therapeutic wilderness program or are experiencing difficulties in transitioning into a college setting or independent living.

Milestones’ participants have demonstrated the potential and desire to live independently of their parents.  Also they display enough emotional maturity to pursue college or vocational education, work on a part time basis, complete volunteer community service and maintain an apartment.  Participants elect to come to Milestones; they are legal adults and agree to follow the community agreements.


When I first came to Milestones I was in really bad shape but with the kindness and helpfulness the staff showed me I was able to get my life back on track and succeed plus I made a bunch of friends along the way.”
