Filling a gap: Nonprofit helps young adults with disabilities gain independence in Lincoln -
Lincoln Journal Star
"That's what the college is for - finding where you belong and working from there."
The timing was perfect for Erin Ziegelbein.
She’d graduated from North Star High School and had been taking classes at Southeast Community College when she and her mom attended a public forum about a fledgling nonprofit called Nebraska Transition College.
Founder and executive director Stuart Stofferahn wanted to fill a gap in services for young adults with autism and other developmental disabilities.
The goal: to design a program for high-functioning people who might not qualify for state services -- or find themselves on a waiting list -- but who need more help developing social, emotional and work-ready skills to land jobs and become independent.
Nebraska Transition College offers classes for students with disabilities - 10/11 NOW
Through a collaborative relationship with Southeast Community College, NTC will begin its first classes on the campus at 88th and O St in Lincoln, NE.
