Independent Living Skills

Independent Living Skills, classes to live more independently.

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 (602) 443-0707

Classes every 3rd Tuesday of each month online through Zoom.

All Independent Living Skill classes will be from 10:00am-Noon

Disability Employment Awareness Month

October 18, 2022 from 10:00AM – 12:00PM

It is Disability Employment Awareness Month! Which means it is a perfect time to educate ourselves about disability employment issues and to also celebrate all the contributions that individuals with disabilities have made. Presented by Ability360’s Lisa Purdy.

Nutrition for the Holidays

November 15, 2022 from 10:00AM – 12:00PM

The holidays are an enjoyable time of year. However, unhealthy eating habits can be attached to the parties and gatherings that come with the season. A healthy diet promotes healthy outcomes, supports growth, and reduces the risk of chronic disease leading to overall health and well-being.  Attendees of this class will receive nutrition tips about making healthy eating choices. Presented by the one and only Chef Steve Norton.

Join us to celebrate all of the hard work you put into learning independent living skills this year. Presented by Ability360’s own Independent Living team: Tesslyn Wagner, Ashley Diarte, Leanne Murrillo, and Alexander Castillo.
