As if 2020 hasn’t come with enough stress, pain, and uncertainty, imagine being awakened in the middle of the night by billowing smoke and uprooted from your home for months during a global pandemic. Denice Bartley, who provides supports and health services for individuals with disabilities at Life Unlimited, knows this feeling all too well.

With a warm spirit and smile that lights up a room, Kim Boden is the type of employee and caregiver everyone wants to work with. She is a direct support professional (DSP) at Life Unlimited, and in exciting news, she was just named the 2020 Missouri DSP of the Year by the American Network of Community Options and Resources (ANCOR), a national leader in disability service organizations.
