Independence, Inc. will begin offering single day pop-up shops throughout the Minot community this spring.
“As part of our service delivery system, we believe in meeting consumers where they are at in their lives at that specific moment in time and developing a person-centered approach to address independent living needs,” said Taylor Heine, community relations specialist.
This exciting new program is designed to meet the evolving demands of people with disabilities in the Magic City who may not be familiar with Independence, Inc. services or may feel uncomfortable reaching out for assistance obtaining housing, employment, transportation, health care or financial security.
Pop-up shops will provide individuals the opportunity to conveniently access services, share their independent living goals and meet with staff to identify solutions, connect with resources and develop the skills or tools necessary to achieve self-sufficiency.
The temporary events will involve one hour appointments beginning at 10:00 A.M. at a previously arranged location in the community. Individuals will be provided with a scheduled appointment to meet with direct service staff. During appointments, individuals will enroll as an Independence, Inc. consumer, discuss ambitions, examine obstacles and coordinate a plan for success.
To learn more about the program or to schedule a pop-up shop at your service agency, please contact Independence, Inc. at 701-839-4724
