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.
Other resources we offer with the IL Program:
1. Support Groups
Click below for the flyer and schedule for either Chico or Redding. Registration Required. Any questions for Chico please call (530) 893-8527. For Redding, please call (530) 242-8550.
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.
