The Missouri Association of Sheltered Workshop Managers is comprised of a group of professional leaders dedicated to enhancing Sheltered Workshops in Missouri, programs for the people we serve and the business services we provide. The association is a leader in the field of disability awareness through education, advocacy and active involvement in the legislative process.

Businesses nationwide utilize Missouri's workshops for high-quality, on-demand services that range from packaging to custom assembly. Many of Missouri's workshops are also the proud custodians of highway rest areas, recycling programs and other visible efforts that improve workshop communities and the state of Missouri.
