BSDC promotes a culture that embodies mutual respect, builds on people’s strengths, and gives a forward focus to the lives of people we serve and our staff.
BSDC has served people with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities, and related conditions since 1887. The Center is an integral part of the continuum of services provided by the Division of Developmental Disabilities.
Intermediate Care Facilities for Intellectual Disabilities
The Beatrice State Developmental Center is comprised of separate Intermediate Care Facilities (ICF) for Intellectual Disabilities.

Vocational and Recreational Services

BSDC has a Vocational and Recreational Services team that operates independent of the Intermediate Care Facilities on the campus. While the ICF's participate in vocational and recreational activities, the individuals have full access to the array of programs provided by the Vocational and Recreational Services team.
