Since 2001, Developmental Services Network (DSN) has served its members as California’s only trade association dedicated exclusively to providers of Intermediate Care Facility (ICF) services for people with intellectual disabilities. Working with statewide recognized consultants and a dedicated Board of Directors, DSN is responsive to the needs of its members.
Great Reasons to Be a Member
State Government Representation
DSN Consultants, Diane Van Maren and Kathy Mossburg, strongly advocate on regulatory and legislative issues to make certain our members have the best representation in California and a visible presence in Sacramento at the Capitol. Accomplishments include:
Shared Information on the DSN Forum
DSN provides its members with readily available information to assist them with owning and operating one or more Intermediate Care Facilities. We provide a forum for members where questions and constructive conversations are encouraged to assist the community at large. We keep members informed with legislative updates and pertinent information or laws that emerge from the State’s Capitol.
Educational Programs and Training
DSN is proud to offer providers of ICF services a comprehensive and practical approach to training new and current QIDPs. Our QIDP workshops and other programs contain non-stop introductions and exploration of revised regulations, as well as other state laws for the diverse responsibilities of the QIDP.
Town Hall Meetings
In lieu of our in-person Annual Meeting, we have held several town hall meetings over the past 19 months to provide the most up to date information to DSN members and to allow them the opportunity to hear from our Board and consultants.
