Independent Living Services

CSLA_ISSWe customize our supports in order to address personal strengths, needs, preferences and desires. Developing a clear understanding of each person’s abilities, we expand upon those existing skills to promote independence in problem solving, social interactions, use of community-based resources, and motivation to achieve identified goals.

There are several ways individuals can benefit from our services, including skill development, increased independence, personalized advocacy and assistance. For more information on the many benefits to our independent living services, click here.
