About LifeScape

LifeScape formed in mid-2014 when Children's Care Hospital & School and South Dakota Achieve joined together. We are an independent, non-profit organization, serving adults and children in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Our center in Rapid City provides therapy and psychological services for children on an outpatient and outreach basis. LifeScape AbleKids in Sioux City provides pediatric therapy.

LifeScape – for the landscape of life
The combined expertise of Children's Care in serving children, and South Dakota Achieve in supporting adults, makes us unique in the region. We support people throughout their lives.

Our Mission, Vision, and Values


Empowering people to live their best lives.


LifeScape will be an innovative organization, providing exceptional services and creative solutions for people with varied needs and complex care across their life span. Through collaborative partnerships, LifeScape will become a destination for research, and the development, implementation, and training of technology-based solutions to improve the lives of people we support.

Our Values




Safety & Well-being

Fiscal Responsibility



Our organizational culture, called The LifeScape Way, is based on our vision that all people are valued and respected. The people we support and their families are at the very center of all that we do—based on their wants and needs. We’ve created a graphic to illustrate this – it’s used in training new employees and in meetings with staff, board members, families, and colleagues. It’s a reminder that we each play an equal role in ensuring that we support people well. We have to work together, and if any one of us is off – the whole “wheel” is off. We celebrate together, and we have each other’s backs. No one job is more important than another. Everything we do is to positively impact our mission, to achieve our vision and to live our organizational values.
