PEER TO PEER SUPPORT
Peer support is essential to the Independent Living philosophy and overall approach to service delivery. Most of our staff are people with disabilities who work with our consumers to explore options and solve problems. Because of their own experiences, staff and other consumers provide unique and creative ideas to others living with disabilities as well as true peer support.
The purpose of the service is for peers to share and provide practical, real life solutions to everyday problems encountered as a result of a disability.
VIBE - Visually Impaired Blind Experience
VIBE (Visually Impaired Blind Experience) works with people who are visually impaired and blind to maintain and remain independent in their own environments. Staff work to identify and overcome barriers through supports from assistive technology, peer counseling, community programs, and more.
Assistive technology often enables people with disabilities to perform personal, work recreational and social functions that would otherwise not be possible. Individuals can acquire some items through SICIL based on grant funding and eligibility.
INDEPENDENT LIVING SKILLS
SICIL offers guidance and solutions for a variety of basic living skills to people who are experiencing independent living for the first time, adapting to a new disability or adjusting to change. This can range from assisting in making home accessible for your disability, helping with a budget, guidance in cooking to learning to shop with technology.
Our Independent Living advocates will work with you in your own environment to set and achieve your personal goals.
