Independent Living Skills

Vela, Angela

Our Independent Living Skills program (ILS) is teaching and empowering adults with developmental disabilities to work on and maintain goals such as cooking, money management, cleaning, use of public transportation, self-advocacy training, and use of medical and dental services. Here at TTSR, we are aimed at making sure that everyone we serve is able to stay living independently and to their maximum capacity. By teaching proactive life skills, our participants can gain self-sustaining independent living situations in their communities. Participants in the ILS program at TTSR receive one-on-one training to improve awareness of their rights and needs to enhance participation in activities of daily living. With help from our agency, no goal is unobtainable. We provide a good support network and frequent reassurance to our participants that their goals are within reach.
