It's great that you had a chance to visit with Don about the Missouri AgrAbility project, which has been active in Missouri since 1994. AgrAbility is supported by a grant from NIFA (the National Institute of Food and Agriculture) an agency within the USDA. Our mission is to provide help to farmers and ranchers (and family members) who have disabilities. Our project can help with farmstead assessments, referrals to other helpful agencies and service providers, and links to peer groups with similar disabilites. We work with individuals with any type of disablities, whether from chronic diseases such as arthritis or stroke, or from accidental injuries from accidents. We network with many agencies that provide services including Vocational Rehabilitation, Rehab Services for the Blind, and Missouri's system of Centers for Independent Living. If you have a disablity, or know of someone with a disability, please encourage them to contact us! Our toll-free number at the University is 1-800-995-8503.

Willard Downs, PI, Missouri AgrAbility Project
