"Comfort for Kids"
Care Kits for Children in the Joplin Area

Council of Churches is collecting NEW items to distribute to children in the Joplin, MO metro area to assist in dealing with the stress & trauma of the recent tornado disaster. Additional basic coping tips will also be included.

In just 2 days, we have already received nearly 5,000 requests for the Care Kits from the Jasper County Children's Division, Joplin area Childcare Providers & other Joplin area children's service agencies--with many more requests expected. We need your help!

Adopt-a-Caseworker Luncheon

If you're in the Springfield area, please join us for a free Lunch event on Thursday, June 2nd to learn more about our Adopt-a-Caseworker program.

What a great way to get involved to support local abused & neglected children! We still have 26 Caseworkers waiting to be adopted.
