Ray County Board of Services

Mission Statement
The mission of the Board and its entities is to promote an environment (array of services and supports) whereby citizens of Ray County with developmental disabilities and their families have the opportunity to have productive and fulfilling lives

Vision
Ray County Board of Services takes the long view towards supporting individuals with disabilities.  The current model of residential, day habilitation and personal assistant supports serve a crucial need throughout Ray County.  These supports are a marathon of services that require resources and stainability well into the future.

Ray County Board of Services is well aware of the issues surrounding the sheltered workshops throughout the nation.  Our organization is responsible for the infrastructure supports of the sheltered workshop in Ray County and in such continues to support their ongoing employment efforts in the community.  Still, we are cognizant to the future needs of those individuals employed and supported through the sheltered workshop.  With that in mind, RCBS will begin to expand its current program supports to include Medicaid Waiver Employment Services, and provide an additional choice for supported individuals residing in Ray County.

Values
