Peers provide linkages to community resources, support groups, health screenings, etc. Services are individualized to maximize independence and meet individual needs. We take a trauma-informed care approach to services and support, in addition to disability specialization.
Who is Eligible?
Youth (14 years and older) through older adults with physical disabilities and serious mental illness/serious emotional disturbance exhibiting functional impairment that impedes their ability to live and thrive in the community.
