Day Support Services


DAY SUPPORT PROGRAMS

At RSI, we know that individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities want to spend their days achieving new goals, interacting with others, and enjoying meaningful activities.  Our Day Programs will have unique themes such as an art program, thrift store opportunities, a wide-variety of structured activities, and opportunities for skill-building that enrich the lives of those we serve. All of this offers each adult the chance to make new friends and take part in their community!

RSI will offer center-and community-based day programs. Each individual's day is uniquely structured so they can participate in activities that are important to them. Program staff convene intake meetings with each participant and their circle of support to develop a plan and get to know their interest, hobbies, and personality, as well as vocational interests and goals.

Contact Kristie Root, Day Supports Coordinator at 701-839-4240 or at rsidspc@outlook.com for more information.
