Our mission is to enhance the capacity of youth and adults with cognitive/developmental disabilities to become contributing members of their community.

Southside Services has been providing services to youth and adults with developmental disabilities for the past 47 years. Our agency is rooted in a strengths and relationship-based service philosophy that recognizes peoples’ abilities and values full community integration. We offer three programs (Community Connections, Therapeutic Recreation, and School Based Connections) to our clients that all focus on individual needs and promote independence.

As an essential business during the global pandemic, our staff have been working to the best of their ability to maintain our services. Southside Services has been following government mandates and guidelines while also prioritizing health, safety, and comfort levels of our clients. Our staff have been driving many more miles per day to ensure our vulnerable adult clients receive all the support they need. Your past donations have helped us maintain our services that work to improve the lives of youth and adults with cognitive and other developmental disabilities to become increasingly active, contributing members of their community. 

We are making our way through the woods of Covid-19, but the challenges we faced in the beginning are still present for some of our clients. Even before Covid-19 made its way here, our clients struggled with isolation. One of our main goals of our Therapeutic Recreation Program is to involve our clients in their community and offer opportunities for socialization. With stay-at-home orders, everyone felt isolated and alone. Now that safety measures are easing up, Southside Services is trying hard to get our clients together again and experience their community in a safe way. Your donation today could provide a free community outing to one (or many!) of our clients. Anything helps, even just $10! From November 1st-18th, GiveMN is offering Daily $1,000 Golden Tickets as well as $250 prizes for each organization that receives donations. The more donations we receive, the higher the chance is that we receive a prize. Please consider donating to our organization. Thank you for your generous support!
