Through our core service programs let us assist you in achieving excellence.
Independent Living Coordinators employed by the Center are individuals with disabilities who share similar life experiences to those coming into the Center and are able to share their experience in a manner that will assist those managing the effects of disability in their lives.
Participants develop a plan to achieve maximum independence and set goals toward accomplishing that independence.
Participants learn about the needs and resources required for meeting their individual independent living goals. Independent Living Specialists help individuals set achievable goals that best fit their desires and lifestyles. Peer counseling can be provided individually or in a group setting.
Independent Living Skills Training
Programs are designed to teach individuals with disabilities the skills necessary for acquiring, maintaining, or increasing their independence. Individual and group training can be provided in personal assistant management, building self-esteem, money management, navigating ones environment, and self-advocacy.
Information and Referral
Center staff members identify resources, services, and service providers in public, private, and community organizations that can assist individuals with their independent living goals.
Staff members train and assist individuals with disabilities in understanding and exercising their civil rights regarding government and other service providers. We regularly educate public officials about the capacities and skills of individuals with disabilities and promote rational nondiscriminatory Legislation that advances the full inclusion of people with disabilities in society.
Education Transition Program
Staff identify transition resources and match individuals with appropriate services and service providers based on goals set by the student. Whether choosing the path of higher education, continued adult program education or employment, staff work to assist students with disabilities in making an easy transition into the adult world.
