Life Skills for People with Disabilities - Central East

Life skills programs assist persons with a disability to learn the basic skills of daily living. Services may include training in the ability to travel about the community alone; to live independently in a private residence; to maintain health through self-care and use of medical services; to live within their personal income; to maintain grooming and appearance; and to cope with other requirements of successful independent living.

Employment programs provide employment opportunities for people who have a disability and are searching for a job or assist to prepare for, find, secure and retain suitable employment.
