Steve BartlettThe vision of Midland Empire Resources for Independent Living (MERIL) is a “Barrier Free Northwest Missouri.” MERIL exists to assist persons with disabilities and those who are aging to remove barriers that interfere with complete independence in community life as determined by each of those persons.

MERIL empowers people to live life fully. That is our mission.  Service and support is provided in a variety of ways and always at the direction given to us by our service participants. We are excited that MERIL serves and supports in excess of 1000 people in order to help them achieve, re-gain or maintain their independence within their choice of communities.

To those persons choosing MERIL to serve and support you, thank you.  We care about what you think of the services we provide.  We value your feedback and would appreciate you taking a few moments to complete this comment card.

If you are not currently utilizing MERIL services; give us a call, we would love to be of assistance.
