Who we serve

At MRCI-CDS we serve Minnesotans of all cultures, disabilities, and age groups that choose to self-direct their care.  We have Program Staff ready to assist you in English, Spanish, Somali, and Arabic. Our clients and families choose to self-direct for several different reasons and many of their situations are unique. MRCI-CDS staff are ready to address your individual situation and help you overcome any of your unique challenges with self-direction.

Many people choose to self-direct because they:

  • Want to hire people they trust – family, friends, and neighbors.

  • Want to get help to meet their needs, on their schedule.

  • Want more control over the services they get and who provides that service.

  • Want to avoid group homes/assisted living/nursing homes.

  • Are not getting the type of services they want, or the goods they need.

  • Want to hire people who speak their language, understand their culture, and cook their native foods.

  • Live in a rural area and cannot find service needed near them.
