BERKSHIRE CENTER FOR INDEPENDENT LIVING
Lee, Massachusetts
Michael P. McManmon, Ed.D., Director
413-243-2576

The Center was established in 1984, and "is an individualized transitional program for learning disabled young adults who are committed to the goal of successful, fulfilling employment and independent life-style. Three major components to the program include: CLINICAL to help work through the challenges associated with coping with today's complex world; VOCATIONAL to determine work interests and develop job skills through on-campus job placements, through volunteer placements off-campus and ultimately, to a permanent job in one of the surrounding Berkshire communities; and RESIDENTIAL with a committed professional staff."

"Established in 1984, B.C.I.L. is a postsecondary coed independent living program for learning disabled young adults, ages 18-30. Up to 20 students reside for a 2 year period in shared furnished apartments within walking distance to stores, library, bus line, and other community services."

"The goal of the program is to help each student to gain the self-esteem necessary to become responsible for managing appropriate life skills and finances as independently as possible."
