The Center for Human Services is celebrating its 60th Anniversary during 2015! It’s amazing to me when I think about the original board of directors who began an ambitious vision in 1955 when they pooled their resources and hired the first teacher to work with nine children with disabilities. They knew then that what they had started would blossom into a regional program for people with disabilities.

In 2015 the Center serves over 4000 children and adults with disabilities in 33 counties in Missouri. I’m sure that the original board would be quite proud of our accomplishments. However, I believe that they would be most proud of the accomplishments of the individuals with disabilities who are living, learning and working in their communities and have become an integral part of community life. Their stories are the real miracle!
