Solutions for Independence educates people with disabilities about their choices for community-based living. We teach decision-making skills to people with disabilities and encourage them to be their own advocates in order to acquire the skills necessary for them to live in the community. We also assist in identifying community resources and helping people with disabilities move back to the community with necessary support.
Solutions for Independence assists people with disabilities at-risk of entering institutions to remain in the community. We work with the consumer in developing an Independent Living Plan that will increase the consumer’s chances to remain in or transition to a community–based setting.
Solutions for Independence provides guidance and support for successful transition for young persons with disabilities from the school environment to individual educational, employment, recreational and housing goals. We also give information to schools and parents to better educate young people with disabilities on how to transition successfully. We offer support, mentoring and leadership opportunities.
