  1. Disability Portal
 - The Missouri state government's "Disability Portal" Webpage promotes the disabled as individuals with dignity, and includes stories of individuals and a link to the "Who I Am Outtreach Toolkit." On a more immediately practical level, there are links to state and federal disability benefits, access to assistance technology such as phones, civil rights (including parking and handicap access ramps), and accessibility of the state capitol building.
  2. Elder Care
 - The Missouri Care Planning Council, as with similar organizations in other states, aims to provide a one-stop list of care providers and advisers to help people care for the elderly people in their lives. On the council's website, advice and resources are available on subjects ranging from care planning to Medicaid to home maintenance.

  4. Independent Living - The Southwest Center for Independent Living in Springfield was founded to provide home-based and community-based support for people with disabilities – mental or physical, permanent or temporary – in eight southwestern Missouri counties. It has a branch in Branson as well. The center, which broke ground in May 2015 on a new, expanded facility in Springfield, provides free medical equipment, help learning new technology, support, and referral services to about 1,100 disabled clients each year, according to news station KY3.
  5. Missouri Ranking
 - The Show Me State ranked 10th best in the nation in United Cerebral Palsy's 2014 nationwide rating of state services to the disabled. Notable state findings in the UCP survey showed that the number and proportion of disabled people living in their own or family homes as opposed to large facilities, was climbing, along with the proportion of money spent in home-based and community-based services.
