Life Skills for a Better LIFE!
Since 1987, we have helped people learn to be self-sufficient. Independent Living Resources (ILR) provides tools to teach life skills to youth in transition to adulthood. Resources for teachers, parents, social workers, caregivers, and resources for youth!
We also have been a national leader in the area of personal safety in the workplace. Professionals are experiencing increasing needs to feel safe at work. Our media training tools, WorkingSafe-WorkingSmart teaches organizations how to create safety committees, address safety without causing alarm, train staff to be conscious of safety needs, and much more.
Thank you for partnering with us for over 30 years to help improve the lives of others! It is bittersweet to announce that ILR will close its doors on December 31, 2019. Wishing you good health and happiness always!
