There’s a first time for everything. For Emily and her sweet pup, Bailey, it is the pair’s first time living away from home. And so far, the independent living is good in the newly constructed townhouse they share with Elena and Lauren, who are also Life Styles clients.
“Emily loves being on her own,” reports Supported Living Coordinator Morgan Ganoung of the 12-year Life Styles client. Indoors, this busy young woman bakes and gets crafty; when away from her new home she loves to shop, hike, attend church activities, and spend quality time with Bailey at the local dog park. The duo is enjoying the cooler temperatures in this, Emily’s favorite, season and anxiously awaiting Halloween—especially for “the free candy,” adds Emily.
Now this ambitious young lady is actively looking for a job so she can “be an independent member of society.” We believe it won't be long before this self-starter records another first in that arena.
