FIVE CORE SERVICES
As a center for independent living we provide the following Five Core Services:
Independent Living Skills Training provides individualized instruction in life skills by setting and achieving goals such as using public transportation, money management, social skills, attendant management, nutrition, and self-advocacy.
Information and Referral provides information about disability issues and referral to other agencies, which provide services to people with disabilities. This is available to the public and to consumers.
Peer Support Services support people as they deal with emotional aspects of their disabilities in group and individual settings.
Systems Change Advocacy strives to change policies to make government, transportation, and housing systems more accessible to people with disabilities.
Transition Services facilitates the transition of people with disabilities from nursing homes and other institutions to home and community based living; provides assistance to those at risk of entering an institution, and facilitates the transition of youth with disabilities into higher education, the workforce and the community.
