We live in an age and society that has become increasingly difficult for young people to navigate. Dragonfly Transitions provides therapeutic support and mentoring for young adults in this time of transition and life development.
Students learn life skills and work to transition into a healthy young adult life with independence, autonomy, integrity, and sustainability. Dragonfly Transitions offers the opportunity for real world experience while providing a stable, supportive environment where students can flourish.
Dragonfly Transitions has three locations in Southern Oregon – Klamath Falls, Ashland, and The Homestead. Part of the admissions process is to explore with the student, the family, and referring professional which site is the most appropriate to start.
The Klamath campus is the largest of the three-sites. There are four residential homes, an academic center, a community center, and a coffee shop and deli. A Leap of Taste provides a unique experience to learn job skills in a supportive and instructive environment. Klamath Falls is large enough that there is a variety of academic and vocation options. It is a manageable community in which students are able to focus inward on their therapeutic journey. In addition, it provides a great community setting to apply and practice the skills learned in the program.
This campus offers a “softer” landing for students coming from wilderness or other residential settings. The Homestead can house up to 8 men and sits on 30 acres. Students move through the day as a group and engage in a range of activities from groups, to animal care, to working in the greenhouse or selling produce at farmer’s market.
The Ashland campus can house up to 12 students and is a co-ed campus. Ashland is located just 70-miles from Klamath Falls. It is a vibrant and unique community offering a variety of experiences from performing, visual, and culinary arts, to education, wellness, and outdoor recreation. Ashland is home to the Oregon Shakespeare festival.
Klamath Falls and Ashland have a variety of vocational and educational options. Students are able to transition between campuses during their stay and this is based on therapeutic, vocational, and academic interest.
