The IRA program manages three facilities that provide residential habilitation services to individuals with disabilities. These services are person-centered and designed to promote independence based on the needs of the person. Services include teaching basic household chores, such as cooking and cleaning, money management skills, teaching the skills necessary to be successfully employed, or appropriate socialization skills. We ensure that all health and medical needs are met, as well as provide transportation for appointments, employment, recreational activities or other needs as they arise. Our goal is to teach disabled individuals to be as independent as possible in all areas of their life and to enable them to eventually live on their own.
