In-Home Support Services


In-Home Support Services provides support to people of all ages with varying abilities and needs. 

We support people living in their own homes or in their family home, placing strong emphasis on skill building and community involvement. Whether you require assistance one hour a day or just an hour a week, our goal is to design a plan based on your personal dreams.

LSS has goals and standards for providing supports to people with disabilities that exceed state licensing standards. LSS is the only organization in the state of Minnesota to be accredited by the Council on Quality Leadership (CQL) which promotes excellence in person-centered services and supports for people with disabilities. Through our partnership with CQL, we not only consider the importance of health and safety, we also look to the individuals' hopes and dreams.
