South Dakota expands Family Support Programs

The South Dakota Council funded systems change activities that led to the development and expansion of Family Support programs. These programs provided person-centered, cost-efficient services so that children and adults with developmental disabilities are able to remain with their families or in their home communities.  The average yearly expenditure per person receiving family support services in South Dakota is $4,945 while the average yearly cost of an out-of-home community placement is approximately $61,911 for a child and $41,157 for an adult.
