Adults With Disabilities


ParentsWithPromise provides individual and family counseling from a strengths based perspective that assumes all individuals  have purpose and strengths they bring to their communities. To identify the strengths and individualized needs of families and their members, we conduct various assessments and inventories. Outcomes and recommendations from these inventories and assessments are then incorporated into Individual Treatment Planning developed in conjunction with the individual and their therapist.

Intimacy, Advocacy & Life Skills Programs

The Life Skills programs are tailored to meet individual client needs, and they generally include a focus on functional programming and preparing clients for independent living and working. The goal is to prepare clients for independent adult life. Vocational/transition planning is a focus for clients as well as assistance in improving their social and problem-solving skills.

This class has many different skill areas that are addressed such as: 
  • Goal setting
  • Daily living
  • Nutrition
  • Workplace conflict resolution
  • Housing
  • Insurance
  • Relationships and communication
  • Self-care
