Community Support Providers (CSPs) were created to deliver community based services. There are 19 Community Support Providers with over 3,300 staff members that serve and support approximately 4,000 people across South Dakota.

South Dakotans have worked together for over 40 years to improve the standard of living for people with disabilities and to improve how people with disabilities are viewed and treated. The Community Support Providers have been key to the success that has been achieved.

Member agencies support over 98 percent of adults with developmental disabilities in South Dakota and provide services to a significant number of children as well.

The needs of the people we support are becoming more complex. Over 50% of the people CSPs support have a co-occurring mental health diagnosis and/or significant behavioral issues.
