Mission Statement: CCI supports real people to make real choices and live real lives.
Our Vision of the Future: CCI strives to provide the highest quality services to meet the changing needs of people with disabilities to assure that every person, regardless of ability, reaches their fullest potential.
Our agency was incorporated in May 1975 as South Central Adjustment Training Center. In 1976 the first eight individuals came from the Redfield Developmental Center. We had thirteen staff members and two living options, both of which were group homes.
In 2000, we changed our name to Community Connections, Inc. Today, we are supporting over fifty people with a staff of sixty five. Our community living options number six with only one being a group home. Now work consists of mostly community based jobs with more options for employment.
Community Support Provider Credential Program
Community Support Providers (CSP) in South Dakota has a long and successful history of providing the best quality services and supports to those with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD). This success has been in large part due to the dedication and hard work of frontline Direct Support Professionals (DSP) that make these services possible. The need for supporting our DSPs is even greater today! View the pdf.
