DHS manages publicly funded programs that support people with a variety of disabilities, including developmental disabilities, chronic medical conditions, acquired or traumatic brain injuries and physical disabilities.
Over the past two decades, Minnesota has successfully transitioned from high use of institutional services, such as regional treatment centers and nursing facilities, to effectively serve people with disabilities with flexible, cost-effective home and community-based services.
The Disability Linkage Line® is a free statewide service to help you find options to live independently. You can call 866-333-2466 Monday through Friday or visit MinnesotaHelp.info and use the online live chat seven days a week.
