“The Mission Project works for me. I get to live on my own, work, and hang out with new and old friends. It’s great being on my own and making my own decisions.” —Mallory

"It helps me to focus more and make decisions that are best for me." —Dan

"(The Mission Project) helps me grow more, by being a leader." —Shannon

Your support ensures participants like Mallory, Dan, and Shannon can get to work safely each day, participate in life-skills classes, socialize, exercise and live a full life.

The continuing impact of the pandemic on our organization makes your support more urgent than ever. We have been unable to hold in-person fundraising events, a major revenue stream loss for us. Yet, our newly adapted virtual programming, new employment support program, and work transportation services are dependent on financial support from donors like you.

Please consider a gift in 2023 to ensure The Mission Project's critical work can continue without interruption. Thank you!

ABOUT US: For 20 years, The Mission Project has supported a community of adults with developmental disabilities, such as autism and Down syndrome, to live full and satisfying lives. As a 501(c)(3) organization, our mission is to enable these capable adults to live independently and safely in community with individualized support. We provide a supportive community where program participants enjoy independent living with the support of dedicated professionals, family members, and friends. Our headquarters and participants are situated in Mission, Kansas— a safe community that offers jobs, services, retail, entertainment, parks, and a community center—all within walking distance. With the support of The Mission Project, our participants are able to rent their own apartments, hold jobs, pay bills, and socialize with friends. They exercise, travel together, and serve their community. In short, they live fully. A unique organization, The Mission Project is a triumph for the participants and their loved ones.
