Planning and building networks to help individuals with disabilities realize their hopes and dreams for a full life
"A place of my own where I feel safe and happy...a job I enjoy and can get to on my own...friends and neighbors who are supportive and encouraging...chances to do things I'm good at and help my community."
Every one of us has hopes and dreams--a picture we envision of life at its best. When it comes to our family members with disabilities, intentional planning and support is often required to help them realize their dreams for a full life.
CIF's Full Life Future Planning process is based on the assumption that in order to live a full life as a contributing citizen, individuals and their families must take time to plan for the future.
Individuals who engage in Full Life Future Planning identify a reliable network of people who support and advocate for the individual's hopes and dreams to ensure a full life.
In Full Life Future Planning, individuals, their families and other members of their support network go through a comprehensive six-session process facilitated by a CIF-trained coach. The coach helps the team create a picture for the individual’s future, develop a detailed action plan, identify resources, and begin to take steps toward making that picture a reality.
After completing the six sessions, the team may elect to continue working with a CIF coach through CIF’s Network Coaching service.
