Independent Living

Focus Forward works with participants on increasing competence in independent living skills. Clients practice skills such as:

  • Kitchen and culinary learning

  • Community interaction

  • Transportation and travel skills

  • Independent and collaborative problem solving

  • Computer skills, including Internet safety

  • Self-care, outdoor awareness, nutrition education, exercise

A weekly Baking Day is a chance for clients to practice kitchen skills by researching a recipe, shopping for the ingredients, and putting together the recipe. Cookies and other baked goods are available to take home for a small donation. 

Our staff work with each client on areas where they may need extra attention in order to build their range of skills.
