Community Partners Respond to Housing Crisis

Last year, we served 96,559 people through our services, programming and community education and awareness campaign

9,007 volunteers contributed 59,344 hours along with donated services valued at $1,107,721 to help us meet our mission of building resilient children, healthy families and strong neighborhoods & communities.

In our 25-ear history, we helped launch important community initiatives such as The Tooth Truck, the CAREMobile, Rare Breed Homeless Youth Drop-In Center, and Jordan Valley Community Health Center. We have remained a trusted leader, a catalyst for change, and a valued resource for solving issues in Springfield and the surrounding region. We are the “go to” organization when there is an emerging issue that needs to be addressed – we bring people together to create solutions.

Community Partnership remains a wise investment with a track record of success.  Last year, for every dollar of Caring Communities funding received, we leveraged an additional $9.28 in resources for our community.  That’s a 928% return on investment!

Your support of Community Partnership is an investment in our community’s children, families and neighborhoods. Because of you, we are able to help improve the quality of life for all of us.


Our five core outcomes:

  • Children, families, and community members are safe and healthy
  • Children are kindergarten-ready and succeeding in school
  • Youth are ready to enter productive adulthood
  • Parents are working
  • Neighborhoods are strong and thriving

We also strive to address the red flags identified in the Community Focus Report, while working to achieve measurable results related to our five core outcomes.
