Former Resident's Testimonials

Independent living has made a huge impact on me. When we go grocery shopping, I've learned how to manage money. I learned how to budget and how to save money by purchasing items on sale. Independent living has also helped me with other skills, I had no clue about. I am learning the steps it takes to accept college offers while also being helped to apply for scholarships. Independent living has also helped improve my artistic skills. I've learned how to paint with Mr. Marco and I also learned how to make frosting for cupcakes. Independent living changes every person that is involved. Thank you for the opportunity!

Independent living has taught me how to budget, shop for groceries and being creative. I learned to budget with my allowance so I can buy what I need. We shopped for groceries so we could make lunch together. And we took a painting class and created our own art.
- Bailey Severance


Independent living has helped me find out how much money I had and how much something cost with tax too. I know how to not go over how much money I have, and I know now to get the things I need first so I can see if I have any money to get the things I want.
- Sky Alonzo


Since I have been in independent living I have learned how to budget my money. I have also learned how to make lists and follow them. Plus you learn what's a deal and really what isn't. Lastly I learned how to fill out job apps and what to say and what not to durning a job interview. Lastly it helped me work things out when I am having a problem. It gives me someone to talk to.

Independent living helped me by teaching me how to manage my money and pick healthy foods. It helped me manage my time and savings too. It taught me to stand up against bullying and be nicer to others. It also taught me how to cope. It helped me talk out loud and become more outgoing and social. It taught me what I would have to do when I get a house or apply for a job.
