The Developmental Disabilities Resource Board of Clay County, Missouri derives its authority from Sections 205.968 to 205.972, RSMo., commonly called the "County Sheltered Workshop" law.  

Authority is further drawn from the citizens of Clay County as per the passage of the original county tax levy on April 6, 1971 and from the Clay County Court Resolution dated May 3, 1971 which appointed the first Board of Directors of the Clay County Sheltered Facilities Board. The name of the Board was subsequently changed officially on January 1, 1993.

The mission of the Board is to promote an environment (array of services and supports) whereby citizens of Clay County with developmental disabilities and their families have the opportunity to have productive and fulfilling lives.
