Independent Living Support

Reach for Resources helps adults with developmental disabilities achieve the highest level of self-reliance possible and integrate into their communities. We work with individuals by providing person-centered services to best work with each individual and their families. This type of support is different for each person and is based around their preferences, goals and abilities. We offer a wide range of support services, including housing search, employment search, employment skills, budgeting, bill paying, daily living skills, health, hygiene, safety, and socialization.

Community Contract Services

This is a service for individuals ages 16+ who do not meet the qualifications for waivered services; however while in school, they received special education or were on an IEP for a developmental disability. Reach is one of just a few organizations in the Twin Cities that contracts with Hennepin County to offer the Community Contract Program. This outcome-based program is designed so that once the desired outcomes are achieved, we would put together a graduation plan to end Community Contract services.
