Independent Living Program
PORT provides supervised independent living opportunities in some of the group homes. Curriculum and programming are designed to meet the individual needs of the resident enrolled in the program. Goals for this program are reflected in their Individual Behavior Plan (IBP) and are designed in collaboration with the referral agent, resident, family and PORT staff. If appropriate, residents may also enroll in a weekly Lutheran Social Services (LSS) Independent Living Skills Program which provides information and skills in areas such as checking accounts, renting options, job searches, meal planning, and budgeting.
