Supportive Living Success is a workshop for both providers and state agency staff involved with the Supportive Living Program (SLP). These training workshops are intended not only to provide valuable information on relevant topics related to the SLP, but also to promote a consistency of program interpretation throughout the state.
Sessions are conducted by experts in their fields, including knowledgeable state staff and proven providers in the SLP industry who have successfully developed best practices. Topics presented contain information that can be used by operational and approved SLF providers. In addition to the training content, ample opportunity for questions and answers will be provided as well as discussion by and among participants.
