Skills for Life

Skills for Life is a program designed to provide young adults the skills they need to lead a more independent life. Whether living on their own, in assisted or supervised living situations, people need to have a basic knowledge of money management, cooking, housekeeping, personal care, and community awareness. The Skills for Life program will help them to acquire these skills in the community, with same-aged peers while having fun.
