These services are provided in the home and community and is geared towards increasing your child’s independent living skills. Our effective services will help your child adapt more to the home environment and in special cases it will help your child to prepare for residential living.
Individuals are matched with a compatible worker and they work on a one-to-one basis. This service is provided in the community where the person lives in order for them to develop relationships in their own neighborhood. We strongly encourage the people we support to join local groups, participate in local events and use neighborhood vendors in an effort to create relationships and supports in their own community. They do this with the benefit of a staff member for guidance.
Our program largely focuses on skills building in the home. We work to improve household and personal care skills at every level.
