The Briar Patch Greenhouse experienced another successful year thanks to all the patrons who supported this wonderful, therapeutic program.


Provides services and supports to individuals living with their families or for those individuals who live on their own. The goal of the Independent Living Program is to provide assistance to individuals in obtaining the necessary skills (Activities of Daily Living and Independent Living Skills) in order for them to be more independent in their homes and community.

Individuals and their families are involved with hiring the Direct Support Professional who will work closely with them to insure a supportive, success-driven relationship for the individual. The planning team develops goals for each individual to work on and the Direct Support Professionals support individuals in meeting these goals.


Is an opportunity for individuals to live with a family. These contracted families provide the same quality support services as employed staff in the Home Support and Independent Living Program. Shared Living families receive training and provide transportation to community programs. Call Tammy Waugh, 207-364-4561 for more information.
