|Mission||Working together, we create opportunities and meaningful lives for people with disabilities.|
We see an extraordinary vision – a vision of community that actively includes people of all abilities. At DakotAbilities we work to make that vision come true. We join with the others to make our community one in which all people are valued for their talents and individual contributions.
We not only introduce people we serve to numerous opportunities, we also educate the community to what it means to be inclusive. Our goals include:
Keeping people safe and ensuring their best possible health
Supporting a person-directed quality of life – self-determination, choice and self-advocacy
Facilitating relationships between people and their community. We recognize that quality of life is not a “thing”, but an on-going process that requires focused efforts over time.
DakotAbilities provides services to 140 individuals with developmental disabilities ages 16 to 80 through a variety of service options. These services are available 24-hours a day, 365 days a year. DakotAbilities coordinates programs and services including residential, vocational, medical/therapeutic, recreation, transportation, educational, and case management. Each program is organized through an interdisciplinary process which coordinates evaluation, planning and implementation of developmental training and care according to the specific needs of the individual.
