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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Adult foster care can be a great housing option for those with serious and persistent mental health that require day and night supervision. Additional benefits include medication monitoring and transportation.
These small group living facilities offer housing for up to four adults each where every resident has his or her own room. Staff are available to assist residents 24 hours a day.
Coming soon! The Department of Human Services is working on a new service calledCommunity First Services and Supports (CFSS), which will replace the current Personal Care Assistance (PCA) program in Minnesota. They plan to start rolling out this new service in the middle of 2020.
