WHAT WILL AN AVERAGE DAY/WEEK BE LIKE FOR MY CHILD?
Every week residents engage in activities that encourage and develop independence, socialization, learning and community involvement. Unique schedules are created for each resident according to their specific needs and abilities. A sample day may include a part-time job, internship, school, or volunteer work.
We also offer voluntary participation in scheduled program activities such as cooking, budgeting, or completion of home maintenance care and chores. Social programs are offered and include meet-ups, movie nights, festivals and all of the other things that young adults living in Chicago like to do in their spare time. Further, UAS has created ways for residents to participate in our micro-businesses, Washdog Chicago and/or Growing Solutions Farm.
