Our agency is named after the founder, Art Mykkanen. In 1987, Art responded to a growing need of providing homes and services for people with disabilities. The first home was opened in Buffalo, MN - followed by 9 homes thereafter. When Art died in a car accident in 1997, his wife MaryLou continued to be involved with Mykkanen Services and currently serves as the agency's Board Member and Vice President. MaryLou has since remarried to her husband, Mark, who also serves as an agency Board Member and President. For over 30 years Mykkanen Services has provided services in three counties to adults with developmental and other disabilities. Mykkanen works along side the person's county case manager, family/legal representative, and vocational program and focuses on meeting each individual's needs, respectfully assisting each person to acquire life skills and achieve success towards personal interests and dreams.
