The Independent Living Skills Program is designed to help you make the most of your abilities and increase your self-reliance and self-confidence.

We provide trainings, resources, and information; we can help you take control of your life in order to live independently. Trainings can include, and are not limited to: budgeting; goal-setting; learning public transportation; self-advocacy; organization; personal grooming; nutrition; stress management; and communication skills. The first step towards independent living is to call and set up an appointment with an Independent Living Specialist to schedule a one-on-one Independent Living personal assessment. Our advocates will encourage you in setting a goal(s) and offer resources and support designed to help you be successful. Contact your Independent Living Specialist below.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact any of the Independent Living Staff.

Ability360’s Independent Living Consumer Advisory Council

As a consumer-driven organization, the Independent Living staff at Ability360 created a Consumer Advisory Council to address the pillar of the Independent Living philosophy. The Council represents a cross section of Ability360 consumers. The Consumer Advisory Council provides a vital link for communicating ideas and comments regarding Ability360’s Independent Living Program.

Independent Living is a philosophy, a way of looking at disability, and a worldwide movement of people with disabilities working for self-determination, self-respect, and equal opportunities. The IL Council members are the driving force behind the success of the IL classes and events. All Council members are active participants in the Independent Living Program. The Council meets on a regular basis with staff and each other.  Each member has a job description and participates on committees.  The Council members are excellent examples of the Independent Living principles.
