We are a nonprofit organization that helps people with disabilities - and people who are aging - live independently in Northwest Missouri.

Watch the solar eclipse with us
to support people with disabilities!

The best way we can help you is to learn about you.

Call us and tell us about your disability or health condition.
We'll help you find the resources you need.

The CDS program lets you use Medicaid to hire someone - even a friend or relative - to help with cleaning, cooking, shopping, bathing, and more.

The CDS program lets you work for a person with a disability so they can remain independent in their home.
