Who we are...
Special Neighbors, Inc. is a private, non-profit, 501(c) (3) organization. It was established in 1978 to provide quality residential services to persons with developmental disabilities.
These days, it's uncommon for a worker to stay with the same employer for their entire career. But Mary S. did just that. She recently retired after 37 years of service to JobOne, which was also known at IBS Industries. Mary celebrated with her co-workers and friends at JobOne on November 6th with a retirement reception held in her honor. Mary was a reliable and dependable worker with a lively personality. She brought a sense of excitement to the workplace, which would be emulated by other employees in the workplace. Mary will be greatly missed by everyone at JobOne, but she has a new chapter in her life to explore. Congratulations Mary on a job well done!
Several destination vacation spots were enjoyed by program participants this past summer. Gene and Duane enjoyed a bus trip to Mackinac Island. Sandi, Leslie F., Amy and Pam. enjoyed several days in Branson. They enjoyed a scenic train ride and a visit to the Dixie Stampede. Also, several of our individuals enjoyed going to Camp MOJA and the Parsons Rodeo. Vacations are important to many of the individuals we support but others prefer staying at home for rest and relaxation.
In July 2013, People First of Missouri presented Special Neighbors with the award "Agency of the Year". People First of Missouri is a self-advocacy organization that was formed by, is run by, and exists for people with developmental disabilities in the state of Missouri. Special Neighbors has been involved with People First for many years and has even hosted meetings at our facility. We are honored to be given this award and feel very fortunate to be a part of People First of Missouri.
