REM Community Services

For more than 50 years, REM Community Services programs have helped adults and children with intellectual and developmental disabilities, mental health challenges, and other needs live the full, joyful lives of their own choosing.

Our caring team members get to know each person we serve so we can understand their needs, goals, and preferences for service. We work with the individual as well as family, medical providers, and others in their circle of support to create a plan of service just for them. For one person, that may mean living in a host home as part of their provider’s family. Another individual may need in-home supports and skill building in one of our day programs. Whatever the person’s needs and goals, we’re here to support them each step of the way as they grow and as their needs change.

Helping People of All Abilities Live Well Since 1967

We opened our first group home in Minnesota in the 1960s, when there were few community living options for people with disabilities. As leaders in the deinstitutionalization movement, our programs opened doors for people with a wide range of abilities to live their best lives in the communities they called home.

Over the years, our work has been driven by the belief that every person deserves to live well. Today we work in communities across the country, helping people with a wide range of needs develop the independence to grow and thrive.

REM Community Services is a part of the Sevita family. Sevita is a leading provider of home and community-based specialty health care.
