Day Support

L.I.F.E. Day Support Program

The ECHO L.I.F.E. (Learning, Independence, Friendship, Empowerment) Day Support Program offers skills training to individuals who are not currently interested in, or pursuing, employment as the main focus of their day. Through a combination of structured group and individual activities, participants enhance skills in daily living, safety, communication, decision-making, self-advocacy, and other areas. In-house skills training is reinforced through weekly community trips to music therapy, libraries, volunteer opportunities, and various physical and recreational activities. Person-centered service plans are developed to build on the interests and choices of each individual.

 

The L.I.F.E. Academy, available to all Day Support participants, offers a structured teaching environment to enhance individuals’ purpose and independence. The Academy uses curriculum-based training in over 200 focus areas—including life skills, vocational development, computer technology, and social skills—as well as personalized training sessions designed by the ECHO staff. Participants receive certificates of completion based on criteria for each course.
