community service providers

The Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) funds, certifies, and monitors 20 community agencies which provide supports to people with developmental disabilities. These agencies are commonly referred to as Community Support Providers (CSPs). Providers remain certified by meeting standards outlined in Administrative Rules of South Dakota, DDD's approved CHOICES Home and Community Based (HCBS) Medicaid Waiver, and by attaining and maintaining accreditation by the Council on Quality and Leadership. Find a list of certified Community Support Providers in South Dakota here.

CSPs provide services to over 5,000 South Dakotans in a variety of settings, which may include residential, daytime/recreational, employment services and nursing care. 

Residential options range from intermittent supports for people to live independently in their own homes to around the clock supports as well as Shared Living supports. Services also are provided for those living on their own or working toward that goal. 

Employment services are based on the belief that all individuals with developmental disabilities can work, have positive social relationships, and are supported to enhance their skills, interests, and needs.
