Supported Independent Living (SIL)

Supported Independent Living (SIL) is a type of housing arrangement and support service provided to individuals who require some level of assistance to live independently.

SIL programs aim to empower individuals to live as independently as possible in their own homes or in community-based settings, while still receiving the necessary support and assistance they need.

The level of support provided can vary depending on the individual’s needs and abilities. Assistance provided to a participant will be included as part of their plan depending on the level of support they require to live independently in the housing option of their choice.
