Merakey to host ribbon cutting for Cheatham Transition House in Baton Rouge


Merakey, a developmental, behavioral health and education non-profit provider, will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony celebrating the opening of the Merakey Cheatham Transition House on Thursday in Baton Rouge.

The 10,000 sq. ft. single family house will serve as a residential program that offers men ages 21-35, with autism, a physical place to live and learn. The goal of the program is to provide education, tools, and resources to prepare residents for more independent living.

“The house will provide in-home support, a skills coach to assist with grocery shopping, cooking, and medication management, positive social interactions and community involvement, and vocational opportunities and training at Merakey Gateway Ink – an onsite t-shirt print shop,” read a recent Merakey press release.

Merakey has 12 locations in Louisiana and three in Baton Rouge.
