At Liberty Resources Home Choices, we believe that disability inclusion is essential to one’s quality of life. This means having equal opportunities to build more relationships, become employed, and participate in community events and leisure activities. And inclusion is more than just encouragement – it also involves ensuring the proper resources and policies are in place to make this possible within the community.
Our goal is to help you gain, maintain, and improve the essential skills you need to live independently in your own home and thrive. Whether it’s learning the basics of health and wellness or finding the best ways to use local resources to your advantage, our classes are geared toward all abilities and lifestyle needs.
Personal Growth and Development
For many people, the journey toward personal development yields several positive outcomes. Peer groups, educational classes, and inclusionary activities aren’t just a great way to learn something new – they’re also a way for you to connect with other people who share similar experiences and challenges. Some of the benefits of involvement include:
- Overall lifestyle satisfaction
- Lowered risk of isolation
- Increased civic engagement
- Strengthened practical and social skills
We believe everyone is entitled to equal access to opportunities in their area and should be able to participate in all aspects of life. If you need a ride to one of our classes or group sessions, Liberty Resources Home Choices can help you get there through our reliable transportation services.
