The Independence Project offers a variety of residential options. We will also work with you to create a living arrangement specific to the needs of your loved one and your family. Every person is unique in the type of support they need and how much as well.
In this model, the participant lives with a trained mentor. Sometimes it may be in a family setting. As well it can mirror a roommate situation. However, the arrangement is configured, the individual is in home with their staff.
In this model, we help individuals find a potential roommate match. We work with the families to find an appropriate affordable living arrangement. Sometimes staff lives in as well. Other set ups include a number of periodic hours based on individual need.
The Independence Project will work with you and your family member to offer support if traveling is a desired goal. There will be an application process which includes a Supported Travel Assessment, which will include areas of self care, mobility, self control and following directions.
We have taken individuals on trips in the United States as well as abroad. One cannot even begin to measure the learning that takes place when traveling.
We will prepare a custom itinerary or individuals can apply to join an upcoming adventure.
