Work and Independent Living Program for Young Adults with Disabilities in San Antonio and Surrounding Areas

Our Legacy program provides on campus apartments where a young adult with a disability who is already living somewhat independently can live for 2 years while they practice their independent living and work skills in a real life environment. Case management services are available and are designed to provide minimal assistance and support to sustain living independently. Upon successful completion of on campus living, arrangements can also be made if a resident chooses to live in a community apartment with case management services provided if needed.

In order to live ay Legacy, the young adult must:

  • Be 18 or older.
  • Must be able to live safely in an apartment setting without daily supervision and minimal support (1-2 visits per week).
  • Must have a job or be in school.
  • Must be able to shop, cook and manage money independently.
  • Program is privately funded through SSI and work.
  • Case management and education services include money and medication management education, employment services, nutrition and food monitoring, problem solving and social skills education, apartment maintenance monitoring and connection to community resources.
