What do parents say about Chapel Haven West?

Nancy and David Puffer with Son, Brian

Nancy and David Puffer have been pleased with the growth shown by their son, Brian.

“From the time Brian was in middle school, he began asking where he would be going to college one day. Knowing his limitations, we struggled with how we could give him a college experience, if we could at all. Chapel Haven West was the perfect fit for us, giving Brian an authentic college experience thanks to CHW’s partnership with the University of Arizona, plus the independent living, social skills and employment coaching that Brian needed to learn to live on his own.”

Jean and Larry Makel of Dallas, TX, talk about the strides made by their son, Mack: “Our experience with Chapel Haven West has been overwhelmingly positive. Most significantly, while the standard programing offers excellent social and independent living skills instruction, Chapel Haven West has been flexible and responsive to adapting to our son’s needs and the goals of our family. Our son’s social and communication skills continue to improve and he has developed confidence and comfort in dealing with peers and in community settings. Perhaps the greatest gift has been our son’s connection to his Chapel Haven West friends and the staff. He loves to visit us at home but his desire is to remain in Tucson and continue to be part of the Chapel Haven West community.”
