About Us

We provide in-home living support for those with developmental disabilities, so they can live fulfilling and meaningful lives within the community.

We find joy in working with individuals of varying and wide-ranging support needs, including significant behavior challenges and those with medical conditions and physical disabilities.

Our Mission

We are a Tiered-Supports agency with the Missouri Department of Mental Health. Tiered-Supports use a “tools of choice” approach for positive behavioral change and a better quality of life.

The mission of Perfect Partners is to support the daily life of individuals to help them become active participants in their communities, learn job and life skills, develop hobbies and interests, and create positive relationships.

We believe these are key components to a happy and healthy life. We treat our clients with acceptance, dignity, understanding, and respect. We ensure that the individuals we work with obtain their rights to be involved in and make choices for their daily lives and planning for their futures.

Our Story

In 2013, we opened our doors at Perfect Partners so that we could become an independent living support provider. With personal roots in the town of West Plains, Missouri, we felt like this was a great place for us to help others. 

From modest beginnings, we have grown from a group of four to a staff of fifty employees. Our team has a wide range of experience that includes providing care in hospitals, psychiatric units, and small practices. 

For the individuals we serve, we offer them a rich dailiy life, community integration, and fun social events and recreational opportunites they might normally not be able to participate in.

Over the last five years, we have been honored to provide services to individuals from all across the state of Missouri. We enjoy watching our clients learn and grow. As much as we enrich their lives, we are certain they have enriched our lives even more.
