Caring Communities


Caring Communities works in partnership with 14 Title 1 schools in Springfield. In these schools, we support and facilitate programs and activities that promote parent involvement and increase students’ academic achievements and attendance.

Caring Communities also provides technical assistance to city-recognized neighborhoods and neighborhood groups that are interested in achieving city recognition. Currently, Caring Communities works with more than 13 established neighborhood associations.

Our Neighborhood Resource Center (NRC) at 1471 N. Benton Ave. provides space for our staff and partners to meet with and provide services and technical assistance to families and neighborhood groups.  The NRC and its services are made possible through donation of space by Cox Health Systems.
