The Munroe-Meyer Institute (MMI) AmeriCorps program provide an opportunity for AmeriCorps members to increase the independence, productivity, and community integration of people with disabilities. MMI's AmeriCorps program compliments MMI's mission to promote and enhance inclusion of citizens with disabilities and their families within the community. AmeriCorps members provide direct and indirect services to adults and children with disabilities and their families in communities throughout Nebraska. Approximately 50% of our members provide pediatric behavioral health services in MMI's rural outreach clinics throughout the state. Since 2004, MMI AmeriCorps alumni have chosen to continue their professional careers in communities such as Gordon, Rushville, Chadron, Lexington, Columbus and Kearney.
