The Center for Human Services (CHS) has provided exceptional services and supports for Missouri citizens with intellectual and developmental disabilities since 1955. Our original mission included establishment of programs and services that change the way the community defines and views people with disabilities. I believe that the original board of directors would be proud of the fact that we now provide services in 39 counties in the state of Missouri and are leading the way by assisting people to live “Life Without Limitations“!
Over the past several years, CHS, and the world of services for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, has changed rapidly. As we have responded to the changes in federal and state laws, new mandates, and new philosophies, we have worked diligently to assure that everything we do, and every change we make, meets our mission of assisting people to live Life without Limitations.
As you explore our website, you will see many stories of individuals who have achieved amazing goals in their lives. When individuals live, learn, and work in their community, the whole community benefits.
Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything. — George Bernard Shaw
