Missouri Home of Your Own
Missouri Home of Your Own is demonstrating that low-income (below 50% median) people with significant disabilities can be homeowners without relying on human service programs to provide both housing and supports. Our belief is that the need for housing is separate from the need for support; a simple, yet relatively new concept for the disabilities field.
