Community Services of Missouri—Cerebral Palsy Center
In January 2019, Community Support Services and Cerebral Palsy of Tri-County merged to become the Community Services of Missouri—Cerebral Palsy Center. The reason why two organizations with similar goals decided to merge is because they wanted to serve more people in counties that never had access before.
Community Support Services has approximately 300 staff members and provides services to around 1,500 people of all ages in ten counties, such as programs for adults and children with developmental disabilities, in-home assistance, as well as special health and medical needs. Cerebral Palsy of Tri-County offers learning and therapeutic services to kids up to six years of age.
While the former receives funding from Department of Health, Department of Mental Health, and the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, the latter is funded by center fees and charitable donations. Both organizations have 100 years of combined experience working with adults and children diagnosed with cerebral palsy and other medical conditions.
In April, the Community Support Services—Cerebral Palsy Center hosts the “Trial for Kids,” which is a three-day long trial ride, campout, and auction to benefit the children who receive services from the organization.
In June, specifically the first Saturday of the month, the organization also hosts the Rhythm & Brews fundraiser. The event consists of more than five hours of music on two separate stages, special prices on craft brews, and most importantly bottomless beer. Tickets go on sale in April every year.
