OUR Clients

First-Hand Experiences

We were deeply concerned about our 9-year-old son’s safety and well-being, especially around his siblings. Discovering Creative Concepts for Living was life-changing. Their compassionate and skilled care has transformed our son. He’s now thriving in a supportive community, growing up safely and happily among peers. We’re profoundly grateful for the nurturing environment Creative Concepts has provided, allowing our son to flourish in ways we once thought impossible.

CCL charges no fees for services; all clients are funded through the Missouri Department of Mental Health Medicaid Waiver program. Clients are responsible for their own room and board expenses, which are often covered by social security benefits. In the event that someone does not qualify to receive funding through the DMH Medicaid waiver program, private pay fees can be discussed with Executive Director.

The wait time to begin to receive services varies, depending on individual situations.
