I was among one of the early groups of young parents who received the assistance of the Conmunity Partnership. I was 17 when I used their services and now, 17 years later, I am a successful entrepeneur with a deeply rooted sense of community. I'm forever grateful for the experiences & support I received at the Partnership, and am delighted we have this resource in our area.
Wow! Where do you start?! The Community Partnership is a wonderful organization providing many outstanding and much needed services to the local community. Their programs have an impact on children and families in incredible ways. I moved to the area over 2 years ago, and from the moment I heard about The Partnership and learned about their work, I was impressed. I continue to be impressed, especially having had the opportunity to develop a strong partnership with them. Over the last 2+ years I have had the honor of sending students to volunteer at The Community Partnership, and it never fails they have a blast! I am always able to speak highly of this organization because of what they contribute to our local community, and the example that their programs set on local and national level. The Partnership is truly a hidden gem in the middle of south central Missouri.

The Community Partnership is just that, a partnership in the community! Whenever there is a need, the Community Partnership will come right beside another organization or group of people and help with whatever is needed. The employees there are dedicated to the community and believe in helping and serving. Many of the employees dedicate numerous volunteer hours to other organizations, once again solidifying the name of the Community Partnership!
I serve as the Director of Community Development for the City of St. James and have been personally involved as a volunteer in various programs and services provided directly through the Partnership. I have also witnessed the Partnership's demonstrated success in partnering with other agencies and serving as a catalyst for new service provision in St. James and throughout Phelps County. The Community Partnership's role in improving the lives of the underserved and being a voice for those whose voice is not always heard is of particular interest to me - especially those of women and children. I believe that because of the Partnership's work, the lives of the women and children of our community are improved.
