Independent Living Skills Program

The goal of our program is to assist consumers to develop the skills needed to self-direct their own lives. MCIL believes that ALL people have the right to make their own decisions. Our IL Skills Program utilizes a "hands on" approach to skill development. The consumer meets with IL worker one on one and performs the task under the direction of the IL worker.

What are Independent Living Skills?

Independent living skills are those skills necessary to live as independently as possible. Such skills may include but are not limited to: housekeeping, cooking, time management, shopping, laundry, and budgeting. Skills may be related to social/recreational activities such as: utilizing leisure time in a satisfying manner, or knowing where to find appropriate social activities/resources.

Everybody continues to develop independent living skills throughout their lives. Our program seeks to assist people with disabilities to develop new independent living skills or enhance existing skills.
