Admissions decisions are made based on the compatibility fit between the applicant and the program. To establish this, we have created the following three-part admissions process.

1. Application

Please complete the online application below along with a non-refundable application fee of $450 which includes the cost of a one or two-day assessment visit at one of our sites, and will assist us all in determining the appropriate “fit” for you/your family member. 

2. Documentation

  • Three personal and academic/employment references. These should not be completed by family members, but should include teachers, guidance counselors, staff from previous programs, etc. Please include a stamped envelope addressed to LIFE, Inc. when asking individuals to complete them on behalf of the applicant. This will assist the person filling out the Recommendation Form in returning the form to LIFE.

3. Interview and Evaluation

When all of the above information is received, a one or two-day assessment visit will be scheduled to take place in one of our communities. This will allow the applicant to participate in a typical day at LIFE, and staff will have the opportunity to determine the applicant’s response to the program and its offerings.

The visit will consist of activities like money management, employment, and social interactions. The candidate will have a chance to demonstrate his/her life skills with cooking, laundry, shopping, personal hygiene, etc.
