Who We Are
Who We Are
In Missouri, more than 15,000 people with intellectual and developmental disabilities will receive services this year.
We continue to expand our community services while remaining focused on growing our 125 year tradition to allow the people we support to live the life they want to live in the communities of their choosing.
This year, Emmaus will provide over 1 million hours of direct support services throughout Franklin, Warren, St. Charles and St. Louis counties to many adults with developmental disabilities.
Emmaus’ leadership team has more than 100 combined years working in the developmental disabilities field. Every leader is focused on making positive change in our community and let our Core Values of Customer Centered, Integrity, Initiative and Collaboration lead their strategies.
Their expertise paired with the idea that our Direct Support Professionals are the backbone of our organization ensures our mission and vision are lived out in our everyday services.

Our Core Values
We demonstrate customer centered behavior in many ways, including assessing and responding to varying needs, obtaining feedback from stakeholders, and building long-term relationships to provide the best customer service.
We go beyond what is asked of us, complete tasks with high standards, act independently, adapt to various circumstances, and we persist when faced with obstacles. We value a process of continuous learning, seek feedback from others, and are ready to act on information received.
We have high standards of personal conduct. We may work in many different situations and with various groups of people, so it is of utmost importance that individuals behave with dignity and respect.
We work well with others to achieve common goals. We are part of a broader group that maximizes the best outcomes for customers, both internal and external to the organization.
