Mission Statement

Living Well Disability Services delivers exceptional services that transform the lives of people impacted by disabilities.

Description

Living Well Disability Services (formerly Dakota Communities) is a private, 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in West St. Paul in 1972 by parents of children with disabilities, volunteers, and community partners. Today we support adults and children in their family homes, their communities, and 33 Living Well Disability Services residential settings throughout the region. Our Customized Services include In-Home Family Support (IHFS), Independent Living Services (ILS) and Semi-Independent Living Services (SILS). Since 2008, we have worked to transform our system of service to one that models health and wellness.

We serve a broad spectrum of people with intellectual, developmental, and physical disabilities. These include cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, brain injury, diabetes, Down syndrome, health issues related to aging, diabetes, Alzheimer's, and autism. We also provide mental health and behavior supports as part of our services for people with dual diagnoses. We provide services in ten counties: Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin, Isanti, Ramsey, Scott, Sherburne, Washington, and Wright.

As an innovative, non-profit leader, we advocate for people with disabilities to maximize their participation in their communities to experience full and meaningful lives. We are grateful to over 600 employees and 175 community volunteers who help us deliver our mission every day.
