Community Living Division
A little bit about us
Association of Group Homes supports three residential homes in Maryville, MO. Between the three AGH homes, we support 20 individuals. Nodaway County Services' Community Living Division supports three group homes, five Individual Supported Living (ISL) locations, and one crisis home.
Our focus is to provide the supports needed so the individuals we serve can be as independent as possible and live their best life. We also encourage natural support and community involvement. Many of the people we support work jobs, attend social events, and take advantage of all the community resources Maryville has to offer.

Teresa Lawson, Program Manager
Reva Slusher, program manager
Upon graduation from Northwest Missouri State University in 1977 with a major in psychology and minors in sociology and recreation, Reva worked for Head Start for a year as the Special Services Coordinator. She then worked as a service coordinator for Albany Regional Office for 2 1/2 years. When this agency opened in 1984, she and her husband worked as the first house managers for Edwards Group Home for a year. She then worked part time in various capacities for the agency until returning to work on a consistent basis in 1989. At that time the homes became Medicaid waivered and it was required to have a qualified mental retardation professional on staff, which is the position filled by Reva. Originally there were 3 group homes, which has now grown to 12 homes. Although the job title changed several times over the years, Reva remained in that capacity until she became a program manager for the Association of Group Homes and Nodaway County Services. She and her husband are the parents of two children and now have 5 grandchildren, who are the best! God, family, work, gardening and reading are the things most important to her.
