Our History

In 1988, about ninety people gathered in Salina, Kansas for the 1st Kansas Disability Caucus. Attendees identified issues of concern and those issues were brought to the forefront in the 1988 legislative session. Results from the 1989 legislative session passed a Self-Direction law, K.S.A. 39-7,100, which allowed the establishment of the first consumer directed personal assistance services in Kansas history. This legislation, known as House Bill 2012, required the cooperation of the Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services to provide the program. When people unite toward a common cause, it does make a difference. Read More.
