The We are VIP partnership is four non for profit organizations collaborating to better serve individuals and the families of those with developmental disabilities. Each organization has their own board of directors and 501(c)3 status. The partnership allows us to provide services for the entire life of an individual with intellectual or developmental disabilities.
The organizations benefit from the We Are VIP collaboration by eliminating any duplication of services and by sharing administrative expenses. The shared resources reduces the costs of providing programs, care and services for those that choose any of one our organizations for assistance. The seamless collaboration is so smooth an individual may not even realize they are being served by multiple agencies. When they choose to, they simply take advantage of what is being offered.
Individuals and families or guardians that choose to participate with any of our organizations benefit from the We Are VIP collaboration as it provides increased opportunities to participate in programs, events, services and work that improve the quality of life for the individual. Our shared belief and unique mission to make every person with developmental disabilities feel like a Very Important Person drives all that we do. Please contact us to see how we might best support you and your family by calling 573-334-9661. We are happy to discuss other opportunities outside of the We Are VIP collaboration if your needs aren't something that one of the organizations might best meet.
Each of the partners are members of Missouri Association for Persons with Intellectual Disabilities (MO AID), a state advocacy and information organization for individuals with developmental disabilities, their families, and guardians.
