Narrative

From making healthy meals to managing money, we foster independent living in adults with developmental and intellectual challenges.

We typically see participants from 2 to 3 hours a day, 7 days a week. Those who successfully reduce their need for assistance are seen just 5 to 7 hours a week. We offer support in the areas of:

  • Safety
  • Nutrition
  • Domestic skills
  • Health and hygiene
  • Money management
  • Meal planning and prep
  • Social development
  • Housing acquisition
  • Emergency prevention
  • Community engagement
  • Recreational activities
  • Medical, dental, and mental healthcare
  • Acquisition of generic entitlements

Services are funded by the Department of Developmental Disabilities and free for individuals, except for costs related to voluntary outings such as admission fees and food. There’s also a small activities fee for certain groups such as bingo or arts and crafts.
