Welcome to the Midwest Family

Our mission is to provide person-centered, community-based supports to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities who choose our services.  We maintain open lines of communication with those we serve and their families.  We provide opportunities for people to establish nurturing relationships.  We strive to be more than a provider of services; we are committed to being a valued asset to our community and to the people we serve.

Family Owned


Joe and Kristine Knetzer founded Midwest Community Services and its' sister companies in 2000 in order to provide superior supports to persons with intellectual and development disabilities. Midwest believes that families in need of support services should be treated like family, and strive to incorporate that practice at every level of their infrastructure.

Community Integrated


We strive each day to be an active part of our community. There are daily opportunities to serve, explore, and enhance local businesses and organizations.

Discovering Your Potential

Midwest prides itself in offering a wide range of opportunities and activities at each of our conveniently located Day Service locations. Each individual we serve has unique interests and we believe it is our responsibility to facilitate and encourage those interests. Our mission is enhancing the daily experience of all of the people we serve, and helping them to discover their value to each other and the community.
