About Sesdac

Enriching lives through independence

At Sesdac, we see the potential for independence in everyone.

It’s what makes us so committed to helping those with intellectual or developmental disabilities achieve full integration.

By developing both social skills and job skills, we have helped hundreds of people move on to paid employment, independent living, and rich, well-rounded lives. Although everyone receiving our services is unique, the goal is always the same. Our support leads to a seamless transition to the adult service system and helps navigate the years between school and age 21 by fostering development and offering guidance.

Our clients come from a wide variety of backgrounds and needs. We recognize that everyone’s different, and we make sure that no matter how much or how little support you need, that you feel empowered to live the life you want. Everyone brings their own hopes, interests, and personality, and together we create a community of active, vibrant, essential members of society.

We hope you’ll choose to be a part of that community.

We invite you and your family and friends to come discover Sesdac and life in Vermillion. If you’d like to visit, or if have more questions, please call us at 605-624-4419.
