life skill – noun
A skill that is necessary or desirable for full participation in everyday life
At Rising Roads, we believe life skills are as critical as the therapeutic work we do. Our environment, community, programming and our daily interaction with the clients is set up to teach our clients the basics to navigate life. Our women have the opportunity to learn to live with others, prepare their food, clean up after themselves and to treat others respect. Specific therapeutic groups teach practical tools to build self-esteem and self-sufficiency.
