Teens are involved in various learning activities that foster academic support and encourage advancement in social and life skills. We are here to provide support to both parents and their children with special needs.


Although the fee for Our Place After School Care is calculated at $15.00 per hour for each child, many families are challenged by this. A sliding scale is used to calculate hourly fees depending on families ability to pay. The fee schedule is available from the Director after registration.


One of the program's goals is to prepare students to be responsible citizens. Dependable, qualified staff is available to supervise teens in the program, with appropriate activities planed daily.


Youths are provided snacks and an initial quiet time to relax after an often over stimulating day at school.

Employment & Services

Teens 13 though 20 are accepted into the program. Teacher-teen with special needs ratios will always be considered when accepting new teens to ensure ratios are always appropriate. If your teen is currently attending classes at Hastings Public Schools, free transportation could be provided to the Our Place facility.
