What We Do
Dignity Now, Inc. was formed in 2009 by the Taney County Board for the Developmentally Disabled (Developmental Connections) to serve people with developmental disabilities. It is our mission to be the central source of information, recommendations and supports related to the needs of families of these individuals with developmental disabilities in Taney County. By providing services that fill the gap between those provided by publicly funded state, county and local agencies, we are able to assist families with additional educational, recreational, health and safety and respite care needs.
Currently, we fund scholarships to attend Camp Barnabas and Wonderland Camp, provide Music Therapy and Project Lifesaver tracking bracelets for those with cognitive disabilities.
Our parent organization, Developmental Connections, serves Taney County through Sheltered Workshop, Adult Day Programs and Housing for adults with developmental disabilities. Developmental Connections is a political subdivision of Taney County and receives funding through county tax, Medicaid and grants. This funding is reserved for adults over the age of 18.
Dignity Now is a not-for-profit (501(c)3) and receives administrative support from Developmental Connections. Donations to Dignity Now, Inc. are tax deductible.
Please visit the Developmental Connections website for information on eligibility for services.
