The Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) Direct Care/Support Workforce Initiative seeks to connect people and organizations who want to work together on similar efforts to address the direct care/support workforce shortage.
The gaps analysis study is one of four studies that inform the biennial legislative report on the status of long-term services and supports for older adults, people with disabilities and adults and children living with mental health conditions.
The Minnesota Department of Human Services makes regular reports to the Legislature and the public regarding its services. Reports by the Disability Services Division are posted on the DSD Publications webpage.
The Minnesota State Quality Council, in collaboration with DHS, exists to support a system of quality assurance and improvement of services for people with disabilities. The council works collaboratively with all affected parties to achieve measurable positive outcomes in health and welfare for people with disabilities. The council is committed to a system that is person-directed, outcome-based, quality-driven and cost-effective. Members include people who receive services and their family members, disability advocates, Region 10 Quality Assurance Commission, providers, county agencies, staff from the Ombudsman for Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities and DHS. (Minnesota Statutes, section 256B.097).
