Independent Living Services

Independent Living Services offers a semi-independent apartment program that fosters choice and independence to individuals living on their own who do not require 24 hour supervised supports. In addition, our socialization program provides personalized support to individuals living at home with their families.
Our philosophy is to support the pursuit of life, liberty, and happiness. We commit our resources to enhance the individual's personal choices and community membership while strengthening natural supports. In this endeavor, we honor the right to risk, to learn, and grow from mistakes and ultimately experience the American Dream.
Services include support plan development, Section 8 Housing search, alternative vocational programming, budgeting, banking, payment of bills, menu planning, cooking instruction and grocery shopping.
Support plan development is team focused based on an individual's choices, realistic or otherwise, as we constantly negotiate with the person to develop then plan, create dreams, connect with community and include parents, family and peers.
Assistance with medical and dental appointments, building relationships and community self-advocacy are also offered.
This program provides services for approximately 72 people in the Northern Rhode Island area.
