Boone County Family Resources serves persons of all ages and income levels with a diagnosed developmental disability who reside in Boone County.
Each of us is special, with differing values, abilities and needs. Although different, we all value the opportunity to belong, reach our goals and actively participate in our community. Because each person served is unique, we assist with creating an individualized plan including agency services and supports – a plan to thrive in the community, connect with resources and achieve personal goals.
Boone County Family Resources was established by the passage of a special property tax levy in 1976. Citizens of Boone County supported this measure to help people with developmental disabilities and their families.
Through a partnership with the Missouri Department of Mental Health services have greatly expanded including:
- Supported Living residential program
- Life & Work Connections vocational and practical living skills development program
- Family & Community Living Support service coordination and purchased supports
Services directly provided by the agency have been nationally accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) since 1985.
