Meristem is a unique program dedicated to preparing neurodiverse young adults for a life of greater independence and fulfillment. We are located near Sacramento, California, on a 13-acre campus in Fair Oaks. Meristem students are young adults, between the ages of 18-28, who show the potential to achieve greater independence and self-sufficiency upon graduation. They often have aspirations for career and/or college, and are willing to discover and work towards their passions and goals. Space is currently available to live on-campus and gain independent living and social skills while attending our day program or pursuing college or employment goals. Ask about scholarships opportunities for families eligible for financial assistance.
