Staff from Residential Services provide skills training and support to enable people with developmental disabilities to live independently in their communities. Assisting with finding homes and developing new housing options is the responsibility of our housing advocacy team. To live independently, people with disabilities need the proper support. Our goal is to provide a variety of living options for our participants and the skills they need to manage everyday tasks in their own homes.
Independent Living Services
With ILS, skills instruction is provided for participants who need some support and ongoing training for successful independent living. Our instructors work one-to-one with clients living in the community, helping these individuals learn to:
- Pay rent and bills
- Budget and shop for groceries
- Refill prescriptions and monitor medications
- Prepare healthy meals
- Manage home cleaning and laundry
- Purchase shoes and clothing
- Make and keep doctor appointments
- Resolve roommate or tenant issues
- Plan social opportunities, trips and vacations
- Join a gym or exercise class
Supported Living Services
SLS offers skills instruction for clients who can have a better quality of life with a more intensive level of care and support, including up to 24 hours a day.
