The Strength of the Independent Living Community
Our Community Inclusion Specialist has worked diligently with a consumer for nearly a year. The consumer was not happy with her current living situation but would not express the reason. The CIS discovered she was in a domestic violence situation after receiving an emergency phone call. Our staff member helped the consumer leave the domestic violence situation within 24 hours and located a safe place for them to stay until they could find permanent housing.
The CIS found affordable housing options for the consumer after months of calling, waiting, and countless denials. The CIS then found resources to assist the consumer in furnishing the apartment. The Green Chair Project worked with our staff in providing living room and bedroom furniture and kitchen accessories.
The consumer is now living safe, happy, and worry-free. Her Community Inclusion Specialist continues to work with her to achieve her goal of getting a power chair
The consumer would like to thank the Green Chair Project, Extended Stay and Suites, and ADANC for empowering her to live independently and safely in an environment free from domestic violence.
