Mission and Values
Boone County Family Resources serves persons of all ages and income levels with a diagnosed developmental disability who reside in Boone County.
Each of us have differing values, abilities and needs. Although different, we all value the opportunity to belong, reach our goals and actively participate in our community. Because each person served is unique, we assist with creating an individualized plan including agency services and supports – a plan to thrive in the community, connect with others and achieve personal goals.
Boone County Family Resources was established by the passage of a special property tax levy in 1976. Citizens of Boone County supported this measure to help people with developmental disabilities and their families.
Services directly provided by the agency have been nationally accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) since 1985.
Our Mission Statement
To effectively and efficiently use agency and other available resources to enable Boone County residents with developmental disabilities to THRIVE in the community, CONNECT with others and ACHIEVE their personal goals.
In the course of our service to persons with developmental disabilities, their families, our community, and the team members we work with, we strive to:
- Communicate openly, frequently, and professionally, treating everyone with courtesy and respect
- Be tolerant of our differences and respectful of each person
- Promote a family friendly atmosphere that is flexible, accessible, hospitable and approachable
- Empower others toward personal growth, productivity, independence and responsibility
Our current programs are:

We would be clueless as to all the resources out there, and how to access them, without BCFR!
