Information and referrals
We connect people with services or resources, which will meet their needs or help solve a problem they are experiencing.
Independent Living Skills Training
We meet with individuals to develop independent living skills in areas such as personal care, coping strategies, individual advocacy, financial management, social skills, and household management. We also provide assistance in navigating local transportation services, and applying for social service programs.
Youth Transition Services
We assist youth with disabilities (ages 14-24) in the transition from high school to adulthood and empower them to live more independently through advocacy, information/referral, peer support and independent living skills training. We also help youth with pursuing higher education, locating job and internship opportunities, and identifying social networking opportunities.
