State Operated Services

Vocational & Recreational Habilitation at BSDC

The Beatrice State Developmental Center (BSDC) has a Vocational and Recreational Services team that operates independent of the 5 Intermediate Care Facilities on campus. People living at BSDC have full access to the array of programs provided by the Vocational and Recreational Services team.


The Vocational Services Department focuses on three areas:

  • Work skills acquisition
  • Community employment and production
  • Active treatment

The department's primary purpose is to develop skills and abilities to realize goals and be as independent as possible. 

The Vocational Services Department provides appropriate active treatment based on a person's age, health, and goals. 


The Recreational Services Department provides social and volunteer opportunities.

Volunteer activity affords residents at BSDC to have meaningful impact in their community.

The Recreational Services Department provides health and wellness programs through partnership with clinical therapies. This Integrated Therapies Program allows two or more therapy areas to work together to gain the most wellness benefits.
