Services Provided: LIFTT is one of approximately 403 Centers for Independent Living in the United States. Centers for Independent Living (CILs) are community-based, cross-disability, non-profit organizations that are designed and operated by people with disabilities. CILs are unique in that we operate according to a strict philosophy of consumer control, wherein people with all types of disabilities directly govern and staff the organization. We offer support, advocacy, and information on empowerment in the attainment of independence from a peer viewpoint. We work to ensure that the rights of people with disabilities are protected.
All Centers for Independent Living believe in the Independent Living Philosophy as a basic foundation from which we provide both consumer and community services. Independent living is based on the value that people with disabilities have the right to control their own lives and that disability is a natural part of the human experience.

Funded through DPHHS special contracts, MYTransions strives to help develop a seamless system of Montana Transition services. Montana’s youth with disabilities face a number of hurdles to living a life of independence: social biases, disconnected and sometimes deficient services, lack of information and MT’s large and diverse geography.

Eligibility: VRBS is able to start services at the age of 14.
Services Provided: VRBS provides its individualized services directly and through its network of community-based providers. The new WIOA model requires VRBS to step away from its past practices and to network with schools with services that look and feel more like regular high school classes than traditional VRBS case services. VRBS still delivers those case services, but we now emphasize the delivery of Pre-ETS in the school setting. In fact, high school students with disabilities do not have to be VRBS clients. Pre-ETS are open to all students with disabilities, even those who have no intention of applying to VRBS.
