Information and Referral frequently occurs as a brief service where staff either provides direct information or functions as a clearinghouse, directing individuals to other appropriate resources.

Advocacy to Individuals is an essential service which provides assistance with such issues as housing, employment, and financial benefits.

Systems Advocacy efforts are directed at addressing support or change of appropriate legislation, enforcement of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and the Fair Housing Act, and other issues which promote the full inclusion of people with disabilities in the community.

Peer Support services are provided by persons with disabilities who may be staff members, consumers, or other individuals who are in a position to be of assistance as a result of their own life experiences.

Independent Living Skills Training is the sharing of any information or support which enables individuals to function as independently as possible.   A great deal of staff time is devoted to the provision of these core services.

At the conclusion of the course, students are eligible for individualized employment-related services through DVRS. Another component of the program works with adults referred by DVRS who benefit from instruction on enhancing their job readiness skills.
