Five Core Services
In order to ensure that your needs are met effectively, the L.I.F.E. INC. Center for Independent living has been built on 4 core services:
In addition to advocating for accessibility and disability rights on the state and national levels, we train people with disabilities to advocate for themselves and others.
Staff and volunteers share their own experiences to help others explore options, solve problems, and develop new skills.
Information and Referral
Upon request, we will research a topic in the Center’s library of resources relating to disability. Referrals to other agencies are also provided, as appropriate.
Independent Living Skills Training
Our staff can help individuals learn daily living, attendant management, money management, pre-employment, and other skills critical to independent living.
SUPPORT individuals in the transition process from an institutional environment into the greater community.
ASSIST individuals at high risk for nursing homes to remain in the community.
TRAIN youth with significant disabilities for their next stages of life with job skills and employment placement.
