Our Mission:

Uniting All Abilities.

March is National Developmental Disabilities Awareness month. This March, we ask that you show your Awareness, and your Acceptance with the purchase of the DSF Specialty License Plate - Uniting All Abilities. The proceeds from this plate will create scholarships to pay for teens and adults with developmental disabilities to attend a special needs camp of their choice. Show your support today! 


Our Mission

Our mission at the Day Solutions Foundation is to empower individuals with developmental disabilities in the state of Missouri by creating meaningful experiences, otherwise unavailable, providing opportunities for positive community engagement, and access to goods, services and support which help build self-confidence, maximize personal growth and improve the quality of life.

Helpful Resources

When DSF originated in 2016, our mission was to support adults with developmental disabilities in Jefferson City, MO. We quickly expanded to include teens as well as surrounding counties. With the origination of our Missouri Specialty License Plate in early 2018, we have since expanded our camp scholarship program to a state wide level. As we continue to grow, one of our goals along the way is to help unite the many wonderful programs that we come across to make it easier for individuals and caretakers to find and access information that may be beneficial.
