Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
On My Own of Michigan, Inc. assists adults with intellectual developmental disabilities (IDD) to become independent, social and contributing members of the community. We believe individuals living with intellectual developmental disabilities have the right to choose where they work, live, play and worship. And, when given the opportunity, experience and appropriate supports, On My Own believes they can become active members of the community.
Our goal here at On My Own is to give our members an opportunity to be contributing citizens in their community no different than anyone else and for them to have a social life and lifetime friendships. We give our members a chance at being independent and living on their own with the help they need. On My Own of Michigan’s Social Program is designed for those individuals looking for social interaction and for the possible move to independence. Social members can take up to but not limited to 8 classes per fiscal year. These classes are non-academic and are specifically designed to teach daily living/independent living skills and enhancing our members social and communication skills. We encourage participation in all of our group outings and trips and attendance at On My Own sponsored activities. On My Own of Michigan’s Apartment Living Program is the doorway to independence for those members who are preparing to live independently in the community. The basic design of the Apartment Living Program ensures that the participants will be expected to maintain good housekeeping habits, healthy diets and the skills necessary for living with a roommate. The Support Coordinator works with several members at the same time yet provides customized, one-on-one support depending on each individual’s needs. Each one of our Support Coordinators are available to provide support, insight and guidance.
