Organization Information


Organization: Bear Creek Services

Sector: 501C-3 Non-Profit

Organization Mission: Bear Creek Services was started by concerned parents of children with developmental disabilities. At that time, there were no options or services for their children. In May of 1976, our first group home opened to six young adults. That original home has since been sold but Bear Creek Services has grown and now provides care for over 50 adults with developmental disabilities and traumatic brain injury. We currently provide support in thirteen group homes throughout the Rochester, Minnesota area. Support for our residents is much more than just affordable housing. We provide assistance with jobs, transportation, medical care and offer recreational activities.

  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that dmcbeam.org will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, dmcbeam.org's  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. dmcbeam.org could be an interesting first step.

Definitions
The following defines the various project phases:
  1. Available - a product, program or service is in production
  2. Develop - program or application is being developed
  3. Plan - idea is solid, stakeholders are identified, and there is strong commitment to go forward from all parties.
  4. Concept Phase - idea scoped out with enough details to give an early sizing and/or to build a proof of concept
    demonstration
  5. Pre-concept Phase - an early idea or a requirement.
