Independent Living Skills Training
Happiness House provides this one-to-one service in the person's home and community. The individual works with the instructor to complete a functional assessment of their skills. The individual then uses this assessment, combined with their personal interest, to develop a plan of service that addresses their specific needs. A wide variety of interests can be addressed including, but not limited to: employment, transportation, social opportunities, fiscal independence, health and well-being, activities of daily living, education and maintaining a home.

Happiness House provides each person who accesses our services with a Service Coordinator who ensures that the individual receives the support they need and desire. The Service Coordinator is an advocate for the person, helps them to access and maintain benefits such as Social Security and Food Stamps, connects the individual to community based services such as doctors and support groups, and ensures that they are satisfied with the services received.

Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support Services
Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support Services is an individualized service designed to identify behaviors that prevent individuals with qualifying disabilities from participating in other services or from living safely in the community of their choice. A decrease in maladaptive behavior and increase in positive, socially acceptable behaviors is the primary goal of this service. This service is provided one-on-one but extends to other support staff, family, and social supports for the individual.
