Services for People with Intellectual Disabilities

Services for People with Intellectual Disabilities


Residential Services

Residential services are provided in group homes, individual apartments, individual homes, and family homes in the Bismarck/Mandan area. Services are based on each person’s needs and goals and are provided in the least restrictive manner possible.  Our team members provide support to people anywhere from a few hours per week up to 24 hours per day, seven days a week.

While the services we provide are person centered, they generally include supports in the areas of rights and responsibilities, meal planning and preparation, grocery and personal shopping, social skills, accessing the community, money management, apartment maintenance, attending medical appointments, etc.

Group Home Living

Pride operates six group homes.  Four of the homes are “traditional homes” where a large home is shared by eight people.  The other two homes are licensed as group homes but are people sharing staff in apartments.  This gives people the staffing pattern of a group home, while giving them the privacy of having their own apartment.  Group homes typically have 2-4 DSP’s on each shift and one for overnights.  Some of our homes are all male, some are all female, and some are blended with both men and women. 

The main differences between group home living and apartment living are the staffing ratio, family style meals, and the all-inclusive billing people living in the group homes are charged.

Community Living

Pride’s Residential Services also offers individual or integrated settings in apartments or houses. Individuals are supported in their own homes with as many or as few hours of direct staff as needed for them to succeed in the community.  Some people choose to live alone, and others choose to live with roommates.

Pride also owns several apartment buildings.  We rent to people receiving services as well as to the public.  These buildings typically have one or two 24-hour sites so there are always staff available.  

In-Home Support

In-Home Support is a program that offers support to individuals living in their family home.  Support is typically provided a few hours per week but can be as much as 24 hours per day. This program also provides respite care to families while they are away from the home.


Day Services
