Independent Living Program


The Independent Living Program (ILP) offers youth, ages 16-19, an opportunity to develop skills for independent living in a community based setting focusing on preparing for the transition to adulthood.

The ILP takes place on a post-secondary campus for 11 days and 10 nights.  Participants live in an accessible apartment residence with access to 24-hour attendant services.

Participants work on their own goals as well as participate in a group experience. They have the opportunity to practice life skills in a realistic and supportive environment.  

Life skills experiences include: 

  • using attendant services
  • directing their own services 
  • accessing public transportation
  • managing money and budgeting 
  • meal planning, meal preparation and grocery shopping 
  • personal safety, advocacy and relationships
  • employment and volunteering
  • accessible housing options 
  • recreational opportunities
  • and much more

  
Applicants (clients of ErinoakKids) will participate in an interview to determine acceptance into the program.

Check back next spring for information about the 2021 program
