“Empowering through Employment”

Missouri

~~“The Empowering Through Employment initiative is designed to increase the number of individuals receiving employment supports and services.  This initiative has an established goal of 35% of all individuals receiving waiver services to have employment supports authorized and available for their use.  Empowering Through Employment has been deemed a priority based upon the gap between the percentage of Missourians with intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DD) accessing employment services as compared to other day services. Missouri is focused on becoming one of the high performing states and ensuring that Missourians with I/DD have the same opportunities as other individuals.”
