The Independent Living Club is an ongoing program of education, self help and mutual support for people with disabilities who are homeowners, renters and those with a goal of living independently.
Friends, family members and support coordinators/case managers are also welcome to attend.
The club, which currently holds meetings on a monthly basis, focuses on topics that relate to homeownership, renting and independent living. Some of the topics covered are:
- Money management
- Fire safety
- Insurance information
- Shopping tips and guidelines
- Minor home repair
Because experience is the best teacher, participants are encouraged to share advice with the group, as well as, ask questions of the instructor or other participants. In addition to the education we offer, the club also acts a conduit for linking roommates and provides for socialization.
Designed to work in conjunction with the Club Houses, the Independent Living Club provides ongoing support, stimulates the participant's growth, and fosters individual stability, and motivation to maintain and enjoy an independent living status.
