Shire House is a community of and for college age young adults needing guidance maneuvering their way through school, work, relationships and personal challenges.
There are a handful of asking clients who could use and appreciate our services, but cannot fully participate because of financial hardships.
From one of our asking clients:
"At Shire House, I feel like it's okay to be calm. I feel stable and less anxious. When the staff help me with organizational skills, everyone is always nice about it. I can make a mistake and not be judged. I do not have to internalize others' pain here and I can be nice and acquiesce without feeling taken for granted. I can be vulnerable and candid and the staff supports my introspective endeavors. I feel like, with Shire House, I have a real opportunity to make order of chaos."
From the staff:
Shire House is an independent living community for young adults with Asperger Syndrome and related issues. Shire House offers room, board and supportive services tailored to each individual client. Shire House is a place where the clients feel welcomed, respected and are appreciated for their uniqueness and individuality. With skilled and appropriate staff, we continue to reinforce and encourage independent living skills, social skills, self management and self care. We ask that our clients either: work full-time, go to school full-time or do both part-time. We also offer services for the Asperger Community within the Bay Area, such as parents support groups and social gatherings on a regular basis.
Shire House is a 501c3 nonprofit organization making your donation tax deductatable.
