Our Company

Jack Priggen founded Cardinal of Minnesota, Ltd. in 1995. Twenty years of service in the intellectual/developmental disabilities industry had left him wary of the typical business environment and just-a-job mindset. It was that sort of mindset that prevented clients and employees from truly enjoying the great work they were doing within the community. It was with this in mind that Jack set out to build a company.

Cardinal of Minnesota began with just four homes, but everyone could tell that four was just the beginning. Jack was hand selecting his employees based on more than certification. They had to have high moral values, and a strong ability to be a team player. He wasn’t looking for direct support professionals. He was looking for delight specialists. He was building a culture.

Now, over 25 years later, Cardinal of Minnesota proudly operates 44 homes throughout the state of Minnesota. We still hire delight specialists to assist with the residential and in-home support being provided to over 175 clients.
