SLAM - Chapel Haven Construction Update #1
The S/L/A/M Collaborative (SLAM) and S/L/A/M Construction Services (SLAM CS) have been selected to respectively design and construct a major multi-phased, multi-year expansion and renovation of Chapel Haven’s campus located in New Haven, CT. Chapel Haven is an award-winning, nationally accredited residential school and independent living facility offering a wide variety of program options which empower adults with cognitive and social disabilities to live independent and happy lives.
Phase One of the project consists of three buildings, the first to be built will be a 32,500-SF building will provide housing and educational services for adults 18 years of age and older with mild developmental disabilities and autism. In this intensive 24-month program, REACH adults learn to negotiate all aspects of independent living while enjoying a state approved education program and a nationally accredited transitional living program. Upon graduation, they may choose to continue living in the area and receive continued supports from Chapel Haven.
