In-Home Family Support: (701) 258-7838
The goal of in-home support is to provide staff assistance to the family of an individual who has intellectual disabilities. This service is designed to provide staff assistance in a family's home setting while meeting the health, social and safety needs of the individual. Allowing the family a respite (relief and rest), reduces the stress experienced by families caring for family members who have special needs. This service may take place in or outside the home.
Another goal is to offer assistance to the family member so the individual may remain in the family home and prevent a placement that could be more restrictive.
Youth mentor services are provided to children with an emotional disturbance to assist the family in keeping their child at home. Young adults support youth and model appropriate behaviors and activities. Services may be provided in a variety of settings, as determined by the team.

Transition is planning for one's future after high school while still in high school. Planning for their future after high school may take coordination between many people and agencies, and like all events, the key to success is early planning – while in high school.
Keys to successful Transition:
As any student prepares to leave high school and move on new roles and responsibilities as an adult, there are many Areas to consider:
Where will the student live and with whom? Can he/she live on their own and be responsible to cook, shop, clean, pay bills, manage time, and take care of themselves?
Can the student shop, vote, use the library, make health appointments and utilize their local community to be self sufficient? How will the student get around in the community? Does the student know how to access volunteer, community and church organizations?
Job and Job Training:
Does the student have the skills to apply for a job and to work with others? What type of supports, if any, is available to provide assistance?
Recreation & Leisure:
How does the student spend time alone and in groups? What does the student do for physical fitness and relaxation?
Post secondary & Lifelong learning:
Beyond high school, what will the student do to continue to learn and grow in post-secondary education and personal enjoyment? What supports will be necessary?
