Network of Community Providers
The Division of Developmental Disabilities has funding, certification, and monitoring responsibilities for nineteen non-profit community agencies serving people with developmental disabilities. These agencies, which are certified by the Division of Developmental Disabilities, are commonly referred to as Community Support Providers. These nineteen agencies provide services to over 2,000 people in a variety of settings. Providers remain certified by undergoing review activities conducted by the Division of Developmental Disabilities and include Council on Quality & Leadership or Life Quality Reviews and Administrative Rules of South Dakota reviews.
Community Support Providers provide services which may include residential, vocational, service coordination, and nursing care. Community Support Providers provide residential options for people, such as group homes and supervised apartments. Community living training and residential expanded follow-along are also provided for those who are living on their own or are working toward that goal. Vocational opportunities may include working in the agency workshop, job coaching and pre-vocational training for participants looking for community jobs and vocational expanded follow-along for those working in the community.
