Mission Statement

Mission

To protect the rights of individuals with disabilities by providing advocacy and legal services.

Description

Profile

MO P&A is a federally mandated system in the state of Missouri which provides protection of the rights of persons with disabilities through legally-based advocacy.

MO P&A was established in 1977 to address public outcry in response to the abuse, neglect, and lack of programming in institutions for persons with disabilities.

MO P&A is the only legal rights organization in Missouri exclusively for people with disabilities.

MO P&A provides nine federally-funded programs to protect the legal rights of persons with disabilities. Due to limited funding in each program, the protection and advocacy system establishes specific service priorities and objectives on an annual basis.

MO P&A is a member of the National Disability Rights Network (NDRN). To learn more about NDRN and other state protection and advocacy systems, visit their website at www.ndrn.org.
