Supported Independent Living

Living With Roommates or On One's Own

Supported Independent Living (SIL) is community-based support which promotes the choice of living independently within the community. People supported through SIL often live in an apartment either on their own or with a roommate or partner.

Support focuses on enhancing or developing a person’s ability to live as independently as possible. Skill development can focus on budgeting, apartment maintenance, grocery shopping, social and relationship building, community networking, advocacy and rights, healthy living choices and other aspects of daily living. Hours of staff support varies from person to person and is based specifically on need.
