The Stevens County DAC has several programs that are non-vocational in nature. These programs are designed to help clients with areas of life that are not related to occupational programs or training.
Our personal fitness program incorporates the services of the University of Minnesota, Morris. Twice a day, staff member Susan Jost, transports clients from the DAC to the Regional Fitness Center (RFC). Susan helps clients create and maintain fitness goals. Because many of our clients are also members of
The Arc Stevens County, they are eligible to receive free memberships at the RFC as a part of the Arc Stevens County’s separate services.
Our hot lunch program provides a healthy meal, prepared according to individual client dietary needs. We serve meals for clients with chewing problems, choking issues, diabetes, food allergies, and cholesterol concerns.
Our cook is a Professional Food Manager, certified by the State of Minnesota Department of Health, who prepares hot lunches daily in our commercial kitchen, which is licensed by the State of Minnesota Department of Health.
The hot lunch program also provides work opportunities for those interested in food service. Several of our clients enjoy learning to work in a food service environment at our facility.
The Stevens County DAC has a full-time nurse on staff providing a wide variety of monitoring and administering services on a daily basis to clients who need them.
Medical services are coordinated with the client’s residential facilities as well as individual healthcare providers.
