Each service involves working with and teaching the individual independent living skills by helping them reach and maintain goals. Goals may differ either through providing recreation and building social relationships, creating good hygiene habits, teaching proper nutrition, fostering independence, interacting in the community, or obtaining and maintaining employment.
