Caring Solutions Leadership

Who We Are

Caring Solutions is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization consisting of volunteers and employees who have made a commitment to unique, innovative and customized service for people with disabilities. Caring Solutions was incorporated in 2001 and remains registered in IRS records under its original name, Services by Design, Inc. but has been doing business as (dba) Caring Solutions soon after we began. Our Employer Identification Number is 03-0374478.

Caring Solutions’ leadership provides compassionate, individualized care services for people with developmental disabilities in the Greater St. Louis area. Caring Solutions has both a volunteer governing board and an advisory council, providing exceptional leadership and professional perspective.

The majority of our funding comes from the Missouri Department of Mental Health (DMH) Purchase of Service and Medicaid Waiver contracts through those with developmental disabilities and families who choose Caring Solutions to provide services. Other funding comes from foundations, organizations, businesses and caring donors like you.
