Transition is assisting people with disabilities to move out of nursing homes and other institutions into independent lifestyles of their choice; helping to prevent people with disabilities from entering institutions; and assisting youth in transitioning from high school to adult life including next steps such as going to college or obtaining employment.

Transitioning to Nursing Homes.

  • MHI can assist people with disabilities with living where they choose and maintaining their independence in the community. We can help navigate a move from any environment, including nursing homes, community residential care facilities, group homes, and other institutions.
  • We can assist you with searching for affordable housing, filling out rental applications, learning budgeting skills to manage your monthly bills, learning how to keep your home clean and safe, and much more!

Youth Transition

  • Transition to Adulthood Program – Partnership with local school districts to facilitate learning and discussions. Topics include self-advocacy, leadership, communication, maintaining healthy relationships, independent living skills and more. We have collaborated with districts such as Santa Fe ISD, Dickinson ISD, Clear Creek ISD, Texas City ISD, and Friendswood ISD and have seen many young adults transition successfully into employment and other post-secondary goals post-high school.
