We are Northwest Missouri’s Center for Independent Living
More than half of our board members and staff have a disability. We use our personal experiences to see the abilities people have, and we respect people for who they are.
We believe people with disabilities should have control over their own lives, achieve their own goals, and fully participate in their communities.
Since 1994, MERIL has provided five core services for people with disabilities in Northwest Missouri:
Information and referral
Independent living skills training
Transition services (youth and nursing home)
