The heart of independent living is having the skills to create the life that you want. Independence Northwest offers independent living skills instruction to assist you with the skills that you need to gain more control over your life. We work with consumers one on one to set goals and acquire the necessary skills to deal with everyday situations. We can help you learn how to budget your resources, apply for subsidized housing or learn how to hire and manage your personal care staff. From time to time, Independence Northwest has offered classes on a variety of topics related to independent living skills. We also work one on one with consumers and can develop a plan to acquire these skills.
