Independent Living Services


FCSN Independent Living Skill (ILS) Program offers 1:1 living skill training & support to individual participants who have a goal to live on their own.  FCSN conducts comprehensive assessment of clients’ living skills, enhances person-centered planning, and identifies training and support needed for participants to achieve their living goals. The 1:1 ILS training is conducted at the participant’s residence.

There are two types for ILS training:

  • Intensive ILS Training takes place while clients residing in their parents’ homes with the ultimate goal of moving out from family home for more independent living.
