Public Benefits Consultation
Each What’s Next? Consultation at Center for Independent Futures includes a free Public Benefits Consultation with public entitlement expert Sherri Schneider, founder of Family Benefit Solutions. This consultation will make sure you’re receiving the benefits you and your family deserve, focusing on the state and federal funds available for support needs, housing, vocational attainment, and healthcare. You’ll learn what benefits you’re eligible for, how to apply for them, and how to maintain them—all essential for securing your loved one’s future.
At the core of the Full Life Process are the Three L’s—Listen, Look and Learn. Our approach is person-centered and educational.
Although the word “home” means something different to every individual, there are certain aspects that are universal.
Center for Independent Futures’ activities offer opportunities to gather with friends, make connections, and explore new interests.
