Welcome to CHANCES!


CHANCES is a community group of people dedicated to enhancing the lives of individuals with developmental disabilities like…

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Down Syndrome
  • Intellectual Disabilities
  • Traumatic Brain Injury

These individuals are your children, family members or friends and deserve diverse and enriching opportunities to live, learn and succeed in their community.

CHANCES is an open group and welcomes anyone with developmental disabilities–we want you to be part of the FAMILY!


WE HAVE A NEW LOCATION! 21016 Main Street, Room 11, Reeds Spring, MO (the old Reeds Spring Middle School Building)

M.A.D. Saturday’s are held every two months.  The M.A.D. abbreviation stands for Meetings, Activities and Development.  At each of the meetings we try to provide at least two activities and we usually provide a light lunch or snack.  All abilities are welcome and we encourage our CHANCES members to bring their siblings and parents so that they can participate in the fun as well!  You should be able to find future scheduled meetings posted right here on our calendar.  If you have signed up with CHANCES, you should also receive a postcard in the mail, as well as a reminder email, call and/or text.  We look forward to seeing you soon at our next M.A.D. Saturday!

NOW ACCEPTING BOARD APPLICATIONS! If you are interested in joining our Board, please complete the application and email to contact@chancesofstonecounty.org.

All are welcome to attend our board meetings, which are held the second Monday of each month unless noted otherwise on our calendar.  We ask that before you submit an application to become a board member you attend some our meetings and functions, as well as volunteer if your time allows so that you can get to know us and our members and are aware of the investment we are asking you to make.
