Main Street has a unique philosophy of inclusion that we call “Bring Your Own Independence” or BYOI. Main Street is not a service provider and does not provide care giving or support staff to meet individualized, customized, one-on-one needs. Main Street residents and members are encouraged to bring with them whatever and whomever they need to help them fully access and enjoy the benefits of living at Main Street and/or being a member of the community center. This may mean bringing a family member, direct support professional, communication device, mobility aid, etc.
Residents in need of extra support have the option to hire a Main Street Community Coach, a life coach who provides limited types of assistance. Find details about Community Coaches here.
