|MIDWEST SPECIAL NEEDS TRUST||1-573-256-8055||Missouri Family Trust was established as a result of advocacy by parents and professionals who realized that many obstacles hinder planning for the financial future of individuals with disabilities. The organization was created by statute (RSMo 402.199 – 402.208) in 1989 for the primary purpose of administering special needs trusts for persons with disabilities to protect important public benefits such as Medicaid and SSI. As authorized and specified by statute, the Missouri Family Trust was incorporated as a non-profit and received IRS 501(c)(3) charitable designation.
Midwest Special Needs Trust Charitable Trust Program provides small financial assistance grants to impoverished residents of Missouri with a Social Security verifiable disability.
The maximum grant award is $1500. Grants may be requested for medical and dental care, rehabilitative services or equipment, educational assistance, specialized transportation and other needs not covered by public benefits or available through other community programs.
