What does it do?
Helps you find a place to live and the support services you need
Services may include training in independent living skills and peer support
To qualify, you must:

What to expect:
An Independent Living Specialist will work with you to see if you qualify for services.
They will refer you to an Independent Living Center, where you can talk to someone and find the help you need. You can also call these centers yourself. We'll tell you how later in this Guide.
