Why should you attend an Independent Living Skills class?
These classes allow you to learn and practice skills to live more independently, while meeting other people with similar experiences.
Independent living classes are always the third Tuesday of the month. We take a half hour (1/2 hour) for lunch from 12-12:30pm. You are responsible for your lunch. There is a cafeteria on our campus.
As apart of your independence we encourage you to arrange your own transportation. If you live within our boundaries, contact your independent Living Advocate to inquire about availability.
If you are not enrolled in Ability360 Independent Living Services and would like more information about the Independent Living complete the form at the bottom of this page.
If you would like to attend or request transportation, please call Douglas West.

What else can we offer you?
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 Advocate to schedule a one-on-one Independent Living personal assessment.
