HCRS Developmental Services (DS) provides comprehensive supports for individuals with developmental disabilities. DS assists families and individuals in navigating their state and local services network. The ultimate goal in DS is preserving the family/community component of care and ensuring that individuals have opportunities and freedom of choices in all aspects of their lives. Developmental services provide homes for individuals as well as school, community and employment supports. All of our services are community based. Our staff work with clients in the community to assist them in reaching their full potential and in becoming as independent as possible. Staff members regularly volunteer to support many community activities such as dances, dinners, and the local chapter of Special Olympics.
Our services are intended to help people achieve outcomes in four key areas:
1. Having a safe comfortable home of their choice
2. Health and wellness
3. Relationship development
4. Opportunities for work or other meaningful activities in the community
In order to accomplish those outcomes, we offer a variety of living situations and well trained staff that includes nurses, employment specialists, and direct service staff to support people in the community.
