We provide the bridge from dependent adolescence to independent adulthood.
Independence Center, a postsecondary mainstreamed residential program
established in 1985, and the only program of its kind to offer
scholarships, serves men and women, ages 18-30. We are a purposely small
program, typically serving about 25-30 clients at once.
Program participants live in a large corporate apartment complex with our apartments spread throughout the complex. We provide support with:
- independent living skills
- social/communication skills
- vocational skills
Residents work and/or go to school. Typical length of stay is 2-3 years. We do not accept applicants who are retarded or have a history of drug or alcohol problems.
Applicants are accepted at any time during the year.
