Independent Living

We help our clients maximize independent functioning through programs that build confidence, provide social interaction and teach lessons in daily living.

Maximizing Independence

Our independent living programs are designed to help our clients overcome barriers to living life independently. Our hands-on programs provide a nurturing community where our clients gain confidence, deepen social skills and maximize their independence. We offer unique resources that are specific to the visually impaired community and tailored to our clients’ needs and interests. Specialists on staff provide communication assistance, case management, advocacy, academic tutoring, adjustment counseling, Braille phone instruction and more.
