We were honored to host a special guest at our offices last week.  Missouri Governor Jay Nixon joined persons we support, family members, advocates and providers on Thursday, May 5, 2016 at the eitas- Jackson County Developmental Disability Services offices in Kansas City.

He took action on House Bill 2010, and signed the Fiscal Year 2017 budget for the Department of Mental Health. The budget answers the Governor’s call for historic investments in services to help Missourians with developmental disabilities, mental illness and substance use disorders live healthier, safer and more productive lives.

The bill marks a landmark investment in disability services, and we are honored that the Governor chose to take action right here in Kansas City at our eitas offices.  Thank you, Governor!
