A full sized furnished apartment is available for program participants to learn the skills required to live independently. Focus will be on preparing healthy menus, buying food items for those menus with emphasis on making economical purchases. Additionally, they will learn how to properly make their beds, clean their apartment, do their laundry, prepare their meals and pay their bills. Individuals will also be taught how to establish a schedule which will ensure all necessary housekeeping tasks can be accomplished with ease even though they may work during the week. As situations are brought to our attention by individuals or program participants regarding issues they would like to have addressed in the apartment setting, our curriculum will be adjusted. Learning daily living skills will only help ensure success should they choose to be moved into their own apartment. Of course, learning new skills can only enhance ones self-confidence and self-reliance regardless of living arrangement.
