Life Skills Literacy (LSL) is a multidisciplinary intervention model that helps families living with limited resources (including poverty) achieve sustainable well-being. This model, based on ecological theory and a readiness for change framework, prepares people to learn from the program and teaches necessary life skills. The LSL project integrates services from counseling, nutrition and health, housing, family finances, and child and family development while addressing environmental health issues. To remedy problems with accessibility of services, services are provided in families' homes. Service providers create development plans based on families' needs and areas in which change is likely to occur. (Contains 1 figure.)
