Directions in Community Living (DCL)

Once a Case Manager from the Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) Developmental Disability Administration (DDA) helps an individual qualify for DCL services, then one of our qualified staff would begin providing an individualized training plan and support to their clients in their homes.
If you do not have a Developmental Administration Case Manager, contact:
Moses Lake - Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS)
