Independent Living Program

Independent-Living-Program-StaffThe Independent Living Program is certified by DHR and serves young adults ages 16 to 21 who either have gainful employment or volunteer in the community, and can demonstrate that they are able to live on their own. Residents must be under the care of and referred by the Alabama Department of Human Resources.

Upon placement in one of the AltaPointe apartments, the resident completes an educational program and receives assistance from an AltaPointe community support specialist. Instruction can include basic living skills such as money management, shopping, food preparation, social networking, education and career planning to help them achieve the goal of successful independent living.

Our objective is to prepare these young people for the challenges and opportunities they face as self-sufficient adults.
