“I love working for the people we support at Dakota Milestones! Where else can a person go to work where they can see people get excited just to see you in the morning? Seeing people smile is just one of the many benefits of working here,” said Lesli Colestock, a DSP (direct support professional) for Chamberlain’s Dakota Milestones, one of South Dakota’s 19 support providers for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD).
