100% Community Based Programming

We teach and encourage curiosity, communication, choice making, and authentic interactions with the world - leading participants to develop deep connections with their community and chosen support systems. 

About Our Adult Programs

Ala Costa's strength-based instruction occurs in community spaces, not on a school campus or in classrooms. We prepare participants in the least restrictive environment and in real-time. To learn more about our unique philosophy of service click the link below
