The young adult is well supported by a warm atmosphere in the Triform home in which they live. Surrounded by an extended family of full time volunteer coworkers, their children, and other Triform students, a young adult enters into an environment where they can practice life skills and obtain emotional and social supports to build their self-confidence and competencies. One only needs to take part in a Triform household to experience the therapeutic effects of daily, weekly and seasonal rhythms within community living. This rhythmical, slower pace of life helps to create a sense of security and consistency for each young adult, providing a safe foundation from which growth can occur.
Walking into each home a person sees natural beauty all around. In each home the dining table, set for dinner, may have fresh flowers in the center. Sitting at the table with different generations of people from many cultures, sharing a conversation about one’s work or the details of another’s day, gives each person the opportunity to practice and enhance the social skills of conversation and sharing. The home life provides the experiences of daily living and responsibilities, outings, quiet games and conversations, and the possibility of building true friendships.
