Learning to navigate the world with our differences
A Legacy of Independence
Founded in 1985 by a group of parents who wanted an integrated living environment for their children with learning disabilities, the Foundation continues to foster independence to this day.
My Life. My Residence.
Located a short walk from FIL’s main office, residents live in their own apartment within an integrated community for optimum growth and independence. Residential support staff is available 24/7, 365.
Not just living. Thriving!
The Foundation’s Enrichment Program assists residents to grow in the areas of Life Skills, Social Skills, Health and Wellness. The idea is that we don’t want our residents to just live independently, but thrive!
