The On My Own of Michigan® Independent Living Program provides personalized independent living support to individuals with developmental disabilities.
All members of our Skill Building Program are eligible to participate in our Independent Living Program.
Our Independent Living Program is designed to provide you with the customized support you need to begin the transition to and maintain successful independent living.
If you're thinking about living on your own or are currently living on your own but need a bit more support, our Independent Living Program may be right for you!
Independent Living Program support is provided, on average, for one hour per week.
Most of our members meet with their support staff during traditional business hours (Monday through Friday, 9 am - 5 pm), though you'll create the schedule that works best for you and your support staff when you begin receiving services.
In addition to a weekly meeting, members of our Independent Living Program also have access to our 24/7 emergency phone line to help you through non-life threatening situations that may be unfamiliar or anxiety-producing.
The Independent Living Program costs $225 per month. This is in addition to the Skill Building Program cost of $275 per month, as all Independent Living Program members must also join our Skill Building Program. In total, full membership is $500 per month.
Some members may be able to have their $225 Independent Living Program cost covered by Medicaid through Community Living Services of Oakland County.
If you're already a member of our Skill Building Program, no application is needed. Just talk to a member of our staff and we'll get you started!
If you aren't yet a member of our Skill Building Program, please follow the application instructions for joining that program first.
