What is Independent Living?  How young adults with mental problems can transition to Independent Living  

In order for an individual to be able to live on his own successfully, he will need to be able to take care of his personal needs – dressing, eating, hygiene – as well as manage simple household chores such as the laundry and grocery shopping.  Decisions must also be made when dealing with financial matters such as paying bills and managing a bank account, tasks which a young adult with a mental disability may not have experience of but which are all necessary if he wants to live independently.

  1. We need stable housing for our very high functioning young adult (26). Redondo Beach.

    Tolerance is more of an issue than cost.

    She talks to herself and new neighbors are very intolerant and harassing.

    Any information on landlord or property owners with available rentals or even co ownership would be most appreciated.
