In 2002 KenCrest board members who had children transitioning at the time, were asking themselves, “Where do we go from here?” They realized they were not alone in asking that question, and out of that realization was born the first version of TransitionMap.
Since then many others have recognized transition from school to adult life as a critical crossroads, and more planning resources are available to young people and their families on the web and otherwise. With this realization we are bowing out.
We wish to thank Jennifer Graham, who led the team of parents in conceiving this site and then served as its editor for several years, and Kristen Burkhart, who edited the site more recently. We’re especially grateful to the River Crest Fund and the Philadelphia-area foundations that funded this project and to our sponsors: Miller, Turetsky, Rule and McLennan; Altec; Work & Transitional Solutions; Medicine Shoppe; Securet Pooled Special Needs Trust; and of course KenCrest Centers.
Finally, thank you, TransitionMap visitors and contributors, for your support for the past eight years. You have made this a great experience for those of us who have worked on this project.
