Life House I
With the opening in August 2020, LIFE Village's newest initiative, LIFE House I, offers affordable housing in the town of Boone to adults with intellectual disabilities who graduated from SDAP, Scholars with Diverse Abilities Program, at Appalachian State. LIFE House offers a person-centered approach to independent living with paid and natural supports in place to encourage success. The goal for the residents is to learn the life skills needed to live a more independent life such as cooking, managing finances, navigating the public transit system and being an active member of the community.
Openings at LIFE House I and II
LIFE Village has openings at two of our LIFE Houses located in Boone, NC. We have an immediate opening for a male roommate in the town of Boone at the LIFE House I program and two openings for our LIFE House II program for women. If you are interested in applying, please click on the link below and fill out the application. This does not guarantee a spot at either house. If we think you or your adult child might be a good fit for either location, we will contact you. Thank you for your interest in our LIFE House program!
