Embracing Life Together


Provide caring and compassionate support to children and adults with developmental disabilities in their own individual homes.


We believe that all people should be treated with dignity and respect, and we are dedicated to honoring choices, lifestyles, and personal preferences. Every person should be treated as an individual possessing his/her own personal needs and desires.


Each person has a special place in the world –   Side By Side helps maintain, enhance and assist in finding that place!

Side by Side 

About Us – Our Vision

Side By Side was created in 2002 with the vision to provide individualized supports for persons with developmental disabilities. 

“We wanted to provide support that was personalized based upon an individual’s needs, choices and desires” says Owner and President Laura Weisenborn.   

Today, Side By Side continues to adhere to that vision and is best known for our willingness to take on a challenge and our family atmosphere. Laura says, “Our staff is compassionate, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We’re proud of our reputation for providing some of the best services in the Kansas City Metro area, including several surrounding counties.”

A few things we’re great at!

We are an agency of excellence that works diligently with individuals to reach their goals. To support and empower persons with disabilities to live contributory and purposeful lives in the communities of their choice while increasing their independence, and maintaining a safe and healthy environment. We are committed to educating our individuals, through exposure, while allowing them the opportunity to experience new things. We believe that every individual has the key to their ability.

    How can I get services through Side by Side?

    The first step is to determine if your loved one qualifies for services. To do so, contact the Kansas City Regional Office at 816-889-3400 and ask for “Intake.” They will assist you in the initial process of determining qualification.
    If your loved one qualifies for services and supports, the individual will be assigned a Support Coordinator to assist in developing an Individual Support Plan and will guide you in obtaining the appropriate services and supports.
    The individual and/or the guardian and family will be provided a list of appropriate providers.
