About Us

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 Founder and President Laura L. 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.”
