Community Options was founded in 1997 by Bryan Wetch, and was based on his commitment to assisting people with developmental disabilities, helping them achieve a lifestyle they desire.

In 2007, Community Options expanded services to include employment support to more than those with developmental disabilities. Programs include services to families, teenage parents, the elderly, and those with brain injury, or mental health and substance abuse issues.

Community Options is a for-profit corporation. We are dedicated to serving people through individual choice; to live a lifestyle which enhances dignity and respect through meaningful employment, owning or renting a home and having relationships and meaningful roles within their community.

Community Options exists to empower people to express their dreams, and take responsibility to make and carry out their own decisions.

Community Options employs over 400 people across the state, in eleven locations that include all of North Dakota’s major cities and three reservations.
