APOLLO (A Place Of Learning Life Opportunities) provides Independent Living Skills (ILS) training to individuals with a diagnosed mental illness who may or may not have co-occurring disorders.
Who we serve
We serve adults (18+) with a mental illness, many of which have other co-occurring disorders. Individuals must reside in Ramsey or Washington Counties. Services are provided in the individual’s home or in a general community venue.
Services we provide
ILS training is direct training for an individual based on assessed needs and identified areas for skill development in the following areas:
community living and mobility
reduction/elimination of maladaptive behaviors
self-care, sensory/motor development as it relates to functional skill acquisition.
Training is the primary function of an ILS staff when working with an individual. ILS services are directed at the development and maintenance of community living skills and community integration. Service recipients learn independent living skills that allow and enhance their ability to live independently in the community. The goals of ILS include:
providing skills training in the environment in which it will be used
increased independence and decreased dependence on others
support for decision-making skills as they relates to all aspects of daily living
promotion of training and skills acquisition
promotion of self-advocacy
support for communication.
APOLLO also conducts organized community sports (volleyball, basketball, softball) as part of its ILS programming – please call for more information.
About our fees
Services are primarily covered by Medical Assistance and most individuals are on the CADI or BI waiver and must be approved for ILS services through Service Authorizations. Private pay options can be considered.
About our staff
