27 Feb March 2019 Pedal For A Purpose – Something to Do in Springfield MO
Our March 2019 Pedal For A Purpose Partner is Community Partnership of the Ozarks.
For over 25 years, Community Partnership of The Ozarks has been a trusted leader, catalyst for change, and a valued resource in Springfield and the surrounding region. They are the “go to” organization when there is an emerging issue that needs to be addressed and they bring people together to create solutions. Their four primary focus areas as follows:
- Affordable Housing & Homeless Prevention
- Community & Neighborhood Development
- Early Childhood & Family Development
- Prevention & Youth Support
Although their programs and services have grown in number and variety over time, their mission remains the same: to facilitate and promote the building of resilient children, healthy families, and strong neighborhoods & communities. Through programming, resource development, and partnership, they are actively working to create the kind of communities we all want to live in.
Their early childhood initiatives focus on school readiness, positive early childhood development, and quality child care for preschoolers. Other initiatives serve school-age youth and focus on after school and academic enrichment, attendance, tutoring and mentoring, alcohol and drug prevention, and leadership development.
To help build healthy families, they focus on substance use and violence prevention, education and training, and collaborative partnerships that provide crisis intervention and a safety net to those most in need.
To help build strong neighborhoods and communities, they focus on community engagement and capacity building to help build relationships and social capital, to give a voice and opportunities for service and leadership, to foster a sense of belonging and ownership, and to build skills and capacity in both individuals and groups.
