Moving Towards Independent Living

My name is Spencer and I am currently enrolled with Courage to Succeed. Courage to Succeed helped me with my independent skills to such an extent that I wanted to try and live independently from my parents. To do this I started living at Richmond House, a program that provides transitional housing and community support services. I was hesitant at first, but I have come to really enjoy my time at Richmond House. It has helped out with my independent living skills and social skills. They have really helped me to learn about the importance of meal planning and looking at nutritional information for a balanced diet. Everyone has been really friendly and the staff have been very helpful.
