We support people who live in their own home, apartment, duplex, condo, family home, etc. We support people to fully experience all that a valued and interconnected life in their community can provide for them.

Going out into the community and exploring the individuals interest toward employment, volunteerism, making friends, joining a walking club, getting involved in other activities, assisting the individuals with food preparation, house-keeping, cleaning, laundry, organizing, balancing check books, paying bills, transportation, assisting on medical appointments, etc. The large majority of this would be 1-1 work meaning you would only have one person you were working with at a time. We would train you with several individuals and see who you matched the best with to support.
