Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute’s Independent Living Skills (ILS) services strengthen a person’s skills in the areas of managing their own affairs, participating in day-to-day life in the community and making decisions that lead to self-determination.
An ILS specialist meets the person in their homes or other locations to provide education, training and support until all goals are met. ILS services are offered throughout the Twin Cities area. The time spent with the specialist varies from person to person, and typically decreases as personal goals are
achieved. ILS specialists are knowledgeable about a variety of community resources and are experts at teaching people how to advocate for themselves.

In 2016, ILS specialists served 552 persons.
