Services & Programs
We Are Helping People Live Their Greatest Lives
We provide a wide range of services across the Twin Cities and Northern Minnesota. Below you will see the listed programs along with the ability to send referrals.
We have expertise in providing flexible, individualized employment supports — from start to finish — to people with disabilities, severe and persistent mental health, traumatic brain injuries, and sensory impairments. We offer employment services in three different areas: Exploration, Development, and Support. Our goal is to develop customized jobs in the community that capitalize on each individual’s interests, abilities, and personal goals.
Life Skills/Day Services
For a variety of reasons, some people of all ages choose not to work and have other goals. Life skills services engage program participants to live fulfilling lives. These services are offered at our branches and in a variety of community settings. They include volunteerism, leisure and recreation, health and wellness, personal empowerment, access to the arts, making friends, pursuing hobbies, passions and more!
Retirement Services (MARI)
We provide a supportive, respectful environment in its MARI Program (Music, Arts, Recreation and Inclusion), located in the south metro area. The focus of this program is to provide a quality community experience for older adults with intellectual/developmental disabilities for whom employment is no longer a priority.
Case Management (Hennepin & Anoka)
We provide case management and support services to individuals who qualify under the Developmental Disabilities (DD) Waiver, Community Alternatives for Disabled Individuals (CADI) Waiver, and the Brain Injury (BI) Waiver. Reach out to find out how we support those who qualify for these waivers to get the assistance they need to live more independent, self-determined lives.
Independent Living Skills (ILS)
The mission of ILS is to empower participants to take on more responsibility for day-to-day living. We provide support, training, assistance and even supervision to help participants achieve their goals of self-reliance.
Pine County Community Supports
Staff provide supports in the homes of participants to assist with day-to-day living, within Pine County.
Our staff use their knowledge with resources, advocacy, and person-centered practices to offer individuals support with the development of their CDCS plans.
Home Health Services
This support option provides participants with help in their own homes. A nurse visits the participant on a regular basis to assist with medication management and education, and to assess the participant’s mental health and stability.
Serving Hennepin County
Families open their homes to support up to two individuals within a semi-independent living situation. Families license their home as an Adult Foster Care (AFC) home, and CIP supports individuals and families to create a living situation matching the individual’s needs and preferences.
Mental Health Adult Foster Care
Adult foster care can be a great housing option for those with serious and persistent mental health issues that require day and night supervision. Additional benefits include medication monitoring and transportation.
