What is the Life Skills Center?

We believe the skills learned during adolescence should be continuously supported and cultivated to help maintain those skills as they age in adulthood. The Life Skills Center program will encourage participants build confidence in an environment that is both encouraging and safe.

Importance of Life Skills

 Staying healthy, taking up new hobbies, getting involved in the community, and building relationships all contribute to a meaningful lifestyle for any adult. In no way are we suggesting your loved one should acquire every one of these skills. It will depend on their preferences and willingness to learn. But if you can encourage and support them on a journey of personal development and growth, it will become rewarding for everyone involved. These programs contain information and tools to equip younger and older adults with disabilities to move into their own apartments or to be more independent within their family’s home.
