I believe my purpose in life has been to serve children and adults with special needs and I am happy doing what I love.

PTC believes in being firm but loving.
- Ms. Sharon
Ms. Anita told me I could go back to work because she would never call me to pick up my child because she was misbehaving and she didn't lie!
When I walk into the building I cannot believe how orderly everything is and all the students/adults are working quietly!

The day hab is top notch and provides many activities for the adults. All of my clients are very happy.

My grandson has finally been successful in his program and I am already working on him staying in the Day Hab program after he graduates.

Even if I didn’t have any clients placed here, I would still come and visit because I love the program and the staff are great.
