About Us

The “us” of Valiant Living encompasses a lot of different people from our professional staff of caring individuals, the people we serve, area employers, volunteers and donors to our entire community throughout Madison, South Dakota, and beyond. Valiant Living, a private, non-profit community based organization, lives by our motto “Give me an opportunity and I will succeed.” We believe everyone can benefit from encouragement and support to reach their goals and bravely live the life they choose. We are Valiant Living.
Valiant Living’s credentials include:

Certified by the South Dakota Department of Human Services as a Community Support Provider
Approved by the South Dakota Department of Vocational Rehabilitation
Certified by the South Dakota Department of Education
Safety-Care Certified by Quality Behavioral Solutions, Inc. (QBS, Inc.)
Accredited by The Council on Quality & Leadership

Our History is a long one! For over 40 years Valiant Living has been serving the Madison, South Dakota community. Formerly called Every Citizen Counts Organization (ECCO, Inc.), our mission has been, and continues to be, focused on serving people with disabilities.

We believe our new name, Valiant Living, truly captures the spirit and bravery of the people we serve. It also applies to our staff in how they embrace life and challenges to reach their personal goals.

Over the years, our non-profit program has grown and changed to serve our mission in the best possible way. The one thing that hasn’t and never will change is the generosity and support Valiant Living receives.
