The Fillmore County Developmental Achievement Center (DAC) is a non-profit 501 (c) 3 corporation licensed to provide Home and Community Based Services to persons with developmental disabilities and related conditions. These services include:
Day Training and Habitation Services (DT&H); licensed supports to help adults develop and maintain life skills, participate in community life and to engage in proactive and satisfying activities of their own choosing.
Prevocational Services; services designed to prepare persons for paid employment as reflected in their community support and services plan. Activities included in this service teach underlying skills necessary for the person to gain greater independence.
Supported Employment Services; services for persons for whom competitive employment at or above the minimum wage is unlikely, and who, because of their abilities, need intensive ongoing support to perform in a work setting.
Structured Day Services; services designed for persons who may benefit from continued rehabilitation and community integration directed at the development and maintenance of community living skills. These services include intensive therapeutic interventions.
Our Vision is to maintain, market and grow community awareness and support for employment options and life enrichment opportunities for the individuals we serve. These natural supports in the community will support the individuals in developing and maintaining roles as valued community members.
Our Mission is to provide person-centered planning and service delivery that allows for individual ability and interest in employment services, recreation, socialization and community engagement so that all persons receiving services may maintain and improve their enjoyment and quality of life.
Our Philosophy is based on a belief in the personal worth and the right for full personal dignity of each and every individual.
