The Developmental Disabilities program mission is to provide services to individuals with developmental disabilities in the least restrictive environment. Our goal is to provide supports so that the individual served can work toward living independently in the community.

KI BOIS Community Action provides the following services in partnership with The Department of Human Services, Developmental Disabilities Services Division:.  

The In-Home Supports Waivers (IHSW) was created in 1999 in response to the continually increasing numbers of individuals with developmental disabilities remaining on the waiver waiting list. The IHSW allow individuals and families to select services necessary for each individual to remain in his or her own home or family home.
