Although CMSE is a non-for-profit, much of its income is derived from the contract work it completes for local businesses. CMSE simply would not exist if it were not for the support of its local business partners including 3-M Company, Group Schneider, Industrial Textiles, Miller Imaging, Otscon, Paternity testing, Weaver Manufacturing and the University of Missouri. In 1996, CMSE expanded opportunities to its employees by providing on-site employment services. This program has allowed employees to go to work at local job sites with the support of a CMSE staff member (Job coach). This program has proven to be very successful as well as a great opportunity for many of our employees.
On May 1 2018, CMSE celebrated a new chapter in its almost 50 years of service by opening a Day/Retirement Program called the Next Step Day Program. This program will allow those employees who wish to retire the opportunity to continue to remain in contact with all of their friends/family here at CMSE.
