Community Navigator

We believe that certain things shouldn’t be “one size fits all.” In fact, we believe the uniqueness of each person is something to be celebrated.

We know that for some people finding suitability is challenging, and because of this they experience gaps in service. We don’t want anybody to feel like they are falling through the cracks – this is why Innovative LIFE Options created the Community Navigator position.

The Community Navigator is a representative who builds capacity for individuals, families, and communities through connecting, networking, and developing creative solutions. Here at LIFE, we assist you to navigate through what can seem like an overwhelming abundance of resources and services, and, if what you need does not exist – then the Community Navigator will help you to find a way. Together, the possibilities are endless!
