What We Do

DCLS supports people with developmental disabilities and their families and friends through three core service areas.

Community Services: We help people secure meaningful employment, volunteer for service and develop new skills; the focus of these activities is to promote inclusion in our local communities. We also support a year-round calendar of recreational, art and life-skills activities, as well as a self-advocacy group.

Residential Services: DCLS maintains community-based living options adapted to individual needs which are supported by trained and dedicated care providers. Options include semi-independent living, home sharing and staffed residences.

Family Services: Our respite program gives temporary relief to family members caring for a loved one in their home. DCLS also operates the Delta Family Alliance Network, which delivers information, networking opportunities, training, advocacy and peer-based support to families in transition.

Once a service has been selected, and annually thereafter, DCLS works with the person receiving service, their family and other members of their personal network to develop a Personal Life Plan (PLP). The PLP reflects the person’s goals and desired lifestyle and serves as the benchmark for ongoing monitoring of how well DCLS and its services are responding to individual needs and aspirations. Members of the personal network are encouraged to express their concerns and wishes for the well-being of their loved one in the care of DCLS.

 It is the belief of DCLS that all persons with developmental disabilities should be afforded the same rights, opportunities and privileges as any citizen. Everyone has the same rights regardless of ethnicity, gender, origin, religion, sexual orientation, disability or family composition. Click here to view Rights Statement.
