From a young age, we are taught that there are “no limits” to what we can accomplish. For individuals with disabilities, that mantra would be difficult to believe, much less accomplish, without the proper resources from Center for Human Services. CHS provides exceptional services and support for nearly 5,000 individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities across 39 Missouri countries. In this episode of OUTdrive, Cliff sits down with the Center’s CEO, David Kramer, and discusses how his team continues to encourage each individual they serve to live “Life Without Limitations.”
Following a nationwide search earlier this year, David was named CEO of the Center for Human Services, headquartered in Sedalia. David previously served as the Chief Operating Officer at Emmaus Homes in St. Louis. Prior to that, he was a director for Life Skills, an Easter Seals affiliate in Missouri. David began his career as a direct care worker at a Department of Mental Health state facility. David received a degree in psychology from St. Louis University and went on to earn his MBA from Washington University in St. Louis.
The founding mission of CHS in 1955 centered around the establishment of programs and services that change the way the community defines and views people with disabilities. While the mission hasn’t changed, the need has grown exponentially. Tune into this episode of OUTdrive to learn more about how you can support the CHS services in your community.
