Corporate Foster Care / Supported Living Services

Pinnacle Services offers Supported Living Services to children and adults with developmental disabilities. These programs are based in community residential neighborhoods, usually with four individuals of similar needs and interests living together. We support a living environment that promotes as much independence as possible, within a supervised setting. Training is provided in a range of areas, including environmental and behavioral strategies plus daily living activities – social skills, community integration, recreational and leisure activities – and independent living skills – money management, domestic tasks, transportation training, personal hygiene, and problem solving skills among others.

Our Supported Living Services program’s primary purpose is to support consumers as they develop to their fullest potential. Each of our homes is designed to fit the needs of the individual consumer and promote increased independence. We do this by modifying the home environment including adaptive equipment as necessary.

Pinnacle operates Supported Living Services in Chaska, Chisago City, Monticello, New Hope, and St. Louis Park.
