Independent Living Skills

Independent Living Skills (ILS) support is designed to meet the unique needs of adults (ages 18+) with developmental disabilities. Services are approved for up to 20 hours per month based on individual needs (exceptions for more hours may be made). Autonomy is the ultimate goal of ILS, where supports are provided and then actively faded as determined by each person and his or her team. Contact Assistant Program Director Jessie Driver to schedule an intake: jessie@ignitefuture.org.

 

All services are community-based and focus on one or more of the following areas, based on individual goals:

 

  • Self-advocacy

  • Managing services

  • Transportation

  • Relationship development

  • Emergency preparedness

  • Healthy living

  • Money management

  • Communication

  • Continuing education

  • Employment, volunteerism, and internships

  • Home maintenance and safety

  • Self-care

We support people in ...

  • Making choices about where and with whom to live

  • Making choices about how to live

  • Learning, practicing, and using skills that aid in living more autonomously
