Independent living is about making one’s own choices, being fully integrated into society, and having equal opportunities. The Whole Person doesn’t just promote this philosophy: we live it.
With your help we can achieve our mission to provide vital programs in the Kansas City Metro Area which empower people with disabilities to live, work, and enjoy their lives with independence, opportunity, and dignity.
“The wheelchair ramp that was built by the Whole Person has changed my mother’s life for the better. She is now able to attend family events, vacations and go to her grandson's soccer games. She is a happier person because she is now more independence. She goes outside more just to enjoy to sun, something she never did before.” - S. Johnson
"I can’t begin to describe how much help The Whole Person has given to me. They have helped me numerous times in navigating the difficult and frustrating rules of Section 8 housing and landlords, and have a support group which meets twice a month which is also of great help." - Joseph P.
"Our tutor Dana has become a part of our family. In just 6 months, we know more than we ever thought we could learn and look forward to the next year and a half we have with her. Without the help of The Whole Family Project and Dana, our family would not be where we are today with our communication using sign language." - Wagner family (The Whole Family Project)
