LRI proudly offers the You You You Support Group as part of its Independent Living Services department (ILS). The goal of the program is to give people with disabilities the opportunity to address their needs and concerns about living independently in the community. You You You’s mission is to empower people with disabilities to be proud of who they are, as well as teaching new skills and giving participants a chance to make new friends by being themselves.
