As details of the Joplin tornado become clear and hope of finding individuals alive is dwindling I have received word of several losses. One in particular that I have paid attention is to Community Support Services of Missouri. CSS was the first Therap agency in the state of Missouri. I have learned tonight that CSS had 3 ISL individuals who were killed in the tornado 2 Staff are in the hospital with serious or critical injuries. There are 20 displaced persons and many staff whose homes were destroyed. Several staff family members have died.
Community Support Services has a web site where anyone can donate to our consumers or the staff. It is CSSMO.ORG. Thanks to everyone for your thoughts and prayers. The death total is now at 125.
