Independent Living Program/ Life Skills Programming
All residents at Prairie Learning Center gain life skills while here. They wash dishes, work in the kitchen, clean tables/floors, clean bathrooms, clean up their rooms and living area, and wash their clothes.
All residents ages 14 and older will attend Casey Living Skills Independent Living class and Prairie Learning Center.
Our Independent Living Coordinator works individually with residents to work on goals (Life Skills Action Plan) when they leave here to live independently. This includes, but is not limited to, college applications, getting an I.D., living arrangements, where to find health care, job skills, and contact with their Chafee Independent Living Worker in the community for additional resources.
