Our Independent Living Skills trainings offer individuals with disabilities the opportunity to learn and practice the skills needed to live independently.
Training is provided individually as well as in small groups and emphasizes skills such as: budgeting, organization and housekeeping skills, accessing transportation, and consumer rights and responsibilities.
LIFT provides three main types of advocacy and advocacy training; Individual, Collective, and Systemic.
Individual advocacy, as the name indicates, is assisting individuals in gaining knowledge about their rights and how to ensure they are upheld.
Collective advocacy involves a group of people advocating for a common goal, such as better transportation, housing, or accessibility throughout the community.
Systemic advocacy involves groups of individuals seeking changes in laws, policies, funding and programs.
Our Peer Mentoring service offers consumers the support of individuals with disabilities who have achieved a level of independence and have the willingness to share their life experiences. Through this opportunity the consumer can explore options, make informed decisions and achieve individually defined control over his or her life.
