Life Lessons: Housing & Supports

Last year, we released Brian’s Story, a short video about a young man who created a life for himself with the help of his family and community. A lot of parents wanted to know more of the details and everyday how to’s that got Brian to where he is today.

We’ve edited extra footage from an interview with Brian’s mother, Teri, to focus on specific areas of independent living and how they supported Brian from childhood to today. In this second installment, Teri talks about the everyday things they did to help Brian prepare for living on his own, outside the family home.
