Independent Living (IL) Program

Our Independent Living Program was created to help those with disabilities receive information and partner with an advocate at DAC to form a plan on how to live as independent as possible. Each Independent Plan is tailored to each individual, and put together with an IL Specialist.

Check out some of the other resources we offer with our IL Program:

1. Housing

We offer self-advocacy and support in searching for and obtaining transitional, rental, and permanent housing. IL Advocates can help with understanding applications and available Low Income and Subsidized Housing in the area. Weekly Rental Lists are available at both Center locations for Chico, Oroville, Paradise, Redding, and surrounding areas. Both by walk-in request or email.

2. Information & Referral

Our information and referral service helps community members become aware of benefits, programs and services available for people with disabilities.

ILSNC also distributes a newsletter to inform the community and our consumers about disability related issues.

3. Peer Mentoring

We provide peer mentors who serve as role models and offer support in coping with day-to-day issues/problems and in social/personal behavior enhancement.

4. Provider Referral
