    AGES Life Skills & Health Literacy Program (Special Project)

    The AGES Life Skills & Health Literacy Training program aims to enhance the self-determined
    independent living capacity of adults with disabilities, and assist their parents/caregivers in developing
    individualized community living plans for their children with disabilities, particularly those from
    immigrant backgrounds. CIDA offers in-person classes, parent meetings, and home visits to create
    personalized independent living plans. In FY 2024, a limited number of seats are available for this
    program.

    *To inquire about the application process, please call (718) 224-8197, EXT. 3, and ask about the Life
    Skills Program.
    This project is made possible through the generous support of the Mother Cabrini Health Foundation.
