Our Mission

People empowering people with disabilities, and their families, to achieve greater independence by providing lifelong choices, support and learning opportunities.


In 1959 Dr. Roger Bost, a pediatrician in Fort Smith, Arkansas, had a vision for special children.

Working with a group of concerned parents, a school for children with developmental delays and mental retardation was formed.

Today, Bost, Inc. is an outgrowth of Dr. Bost's dream. Bost, Inc. has become the regional leader in Western Arkansas for services to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and other related conditions.

Currently, the agency touches over 1,000 men, women, and children with disabilities on a daily basis in 28 counties in Western Arkansas with a wide range of services and programs. Bost, Inc. is a community-based, not-for-profit agency dedicated to developing services for and providing services to individuals in Western Arkansas and adjacent regions who have mental and developmental disabilities and other related conditions.

The dedicated staff at Bost, Inc. provide these community living services for individuals with disabilities, as well as their families, to maximize the quality of lives. Bost continues to offer programs and services for both children and adults with disabilities so that they can live, work and thrive in their own community. Proud of its past and poised for its future, Bost is here when you need us!
