Dear Friends, It is my honor and privilege to serve as the 2014 Board President for the Council of Churches of the Ozarks. Working with a dedicated group of individuals on behalf of the Council of Churches, we continually strive to help direct the Council to provide services for those in our community who are less fortunate. I would like to thank everyone who supports the Council through his or her prayers, service and gifts. The needs in our community continue to increase and it is through the agencies of the Council of Churches that we are able to be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ. With the generous support of churches, faith-based organizations and many caring individuals and businesses, lives are touched and the love of God is present in all that is accomplished. The work of the Council is strengthened by the servant leadership of our Executive Director, Mark Struckhoff. Along with our committed staff and Board members, we are continually looking for opportunities where the Council can fill the gap: provide shelter for women who are homeless, provide food and support services for those who are hungry, provide a voice for those who are the most vulnerable, and provide support for the children who need loving care and guidance. It is my prayer that God’s blessings are bountiful in all endeavors of the Council of Churches. Remember that all of us together are uniting faith as we serve with compassion.

David Peck Board President

Dear CCO Partners, I’m grateful for your partnership in serving our community with compassion. Our work together is a sign of God’s Kingdom in action NOW, demonstrating a movement toward greater oneness through service. Last year we experienced record-breaking increases in demand for our services, as you will see when you explore these pages. Clearly, our commitment to compassionate service has never been more critical. As we look to the future, I’m especially grateful for the ways in which we are being challenged to grow in our understanding of what it means to be poor in our community. I’m grateful because I believe such a challenge will inspire us to draw nearer to God’s heart for the poor, and be changed as a result. Our ability to respond to and reduce poverty will grow as we listen deeply to the teachings of Christ; as we engage with those who study the causes and effects of poverty and as we reflect on our everyday encounters with our neighbors in need. I anticipate great joy in the journey as we serve and grow together, working for greater economic justice and dignity for everyone in the Ozarks. Thanks again for your partnership with the Council of Churches of the Ozarks! May God continue to bless our service together through the 2014 Compassion Campaign, and as we pursue our mission to improve the quality of life in the Ozarks in the name of Jesus Christ.   In Joyful Service,

 

Rev. Mark Struckhoff Executive Director

Programs to Meet Critical Needs and Improve Self-Esteem for Foster Children The Kid’s Closet served 744 children, providing new clothing, coats and shoes, a 30% increase. Volunteer tutors provided 31 students with free tutoring, and 61 teens received dresses through the Prom Closet. Project Self-Esteem funded beds, mattresses and self-esteem building items and activities for 80 children, a 48% increase. The Adopt-A-Caseworker program provided special items for 348 children through 34 community partner groups. Pack-A-Bag provided 313 hygiene bags with age appropriate items for children entering into foster care. Christmas programs provided brand new gifts for 663 foster children. Volunteers donated a total of 1,788 hours of time to the programs and services of AFC to serve approximately 1,200 children and youth, a 21% increase from 2012. “A foster parent recently shared that the stuffed animal her foster teen received at her Kids’ Closet appointment was a huge blessing. She said that it is a real comfort to her and that she even took it with her to camp. The foster parent went on to explain that the smallest things can make the biggest difference in the life of a foster child and was so thankful for what Ambassadors provided for her children.” -Agency Director “One 9 year-old started off struggling to read one word at a time and in a few short months in tutoring through Ambassadors, progressed to reading chapter books at her grade level!” -Volunteer Tutor 

QUALITY TRAINING FOR EARLY CHILDHOOD PROFESSIONALS The 1st annual Called to Care for Kids Conference was a huge success with 120 in attendance. The focus of the Conference is bringing together Sunday School Teachers, Child Care Providers, VBS Teams, Children’s Ministers and other interested community members to support children Southern Region and families. 2013 also brought big changes via an agency move to the former Crosslines building and a United Way Day of Caring Project with O’Reilly Auto Parts. 2013 service numbers include more than 1,220 participants trained through group training “An early childhood professional attended one of our and 122+ hours provided training sessions and offered this feedback, “I learned through on-site technical a lot of information that I did not know. I also learned assistance to programs.  about different ideas to use in the classroom.  Coming today was very beneficial!”   -Agency Director

FOOD PANTRY & SERVICES FOR FAMILIES IN CRISIS In 2013, a record 51,500 people received assistance from Crosslines, a 42% increase in demand. The pantry provided emergency food to more than 43,000 people, with more than 2,300 new families seeking assistance. The mobile food pantry (truck) provided food to 1,005 people in rural Greene County, schools and senior low-income housing areas. Volunteers donated more than 25,500 hours. The 2013 Holiday Center provided holiday food baskets for 8,500 people and brand new toys for more than 3,300 children. “Thank you so much for all of your help, I am very grateful. I have three wonderful children who don’t ask for much and because of you I’m able to give them a nice Christmas. It really fills my heart to know there are such caring people out there to help a stranger out.” -Crosslines Client “A mom and her two sons came to the pantry. The oldest child was about 12 or 13 years old. The boys were very quiet and appeared embarrassed. When they began to shop for food, the oldest child got close to me and in a quiet voice asked, “Does this mean we are poor?” I answered, “No it just means your mom needs a little help with groceries today.” -Crosslines Volunteer

Monitoring Healthy Meals in Home-Based Daycares CCFP monitored 330 in-home childcare providers to ensure nutritious meals were being provided for nearly 6,000 children. CCFP serves in-home childcare providers in 51 counties, including the cities of Springfield, Kansas City, St. Louis, Columbia and Sikeston. CCFP provided reimbursement for more than 2 million breakfasts, lunches, suppers and snacks.

“One of our childcare providers shared with us how much she and her family appreciate being able to participate in the CCFP. It has literally helped them get back on their feet and rebuild their lives. “This provider and her family lost everything, including their car, in the Joplin tornado. With help from family members and community organizations, they were able to move into a four-room duplex in a town near Joplin. In having a young son, she decided to begin doing childcare in her home and she became eligible to participate in the Food Program. She has been in the CCFP for 2 years now and with the added income as a childcare provider, she and her family have recently been able to move into a single family home.” -Agency Director

Providing Essential Home Repairs for Low-Income Seniors CHS provided essential home repairs to 156 households; 8.3% of the jobs (13 households) were to provide major repairs, including water heaters, furnaces/air conditioners, main water or sewer lines. There were 7 households that were restored to a livable condition – the water or gas had been shut off or floors had collapsed; 50 volunteers donated 1,600 hours to help build 8 access ramps and/or walker steps. “God bless you for all you do. I can’t thank you enough for all you have done for me. For my ramp – now I can get out of the house. For my front door – now when the wind blows my door stays shut and when my door is shut I don’t have cold air blowing in. For my railing – I feel safe and don’t feel like I will fall. Once again, God bless you for all do you.” -Connections Handyman Client

PROVIDING MEDICALLY-MONITORED ADULT CARE & DAY HABILITATION Daybreak provided an average of 20.5 operational service days per month to an average of 22 clients daily. Socialization, entertainment and community outings beyond our client’s physical and financial means are also provided. For example, field trip to Branson shows, Springfield Nature Center and a full calendar of events geared around the season is carried out.

“Throughout the year, Daybreak provides many activities for our clients at little or no cost. These outings include the Abou Ben Adhem Shrine Circus, the Dickerson Park Zoo, attending local movie theatres, entering projects and attending the Ozark Empire Fair, and a hayride and picnic at Campbell’s Pumpkin Patch. Thank you for your support of Daybreak.” -Agency Director

Advocating for the Rights of Nursing Home Residents Ombudsman staff and volunteers spent 4,313 hours advocating in 21 counties in Southern Missouri, made 29,227 resident contacts and provided services through staff and 40 volunteers. In 2013, Ombudsman added 4 new service counties in the Joplin area. “Once again, you knocked it out of the park with your gift shopping. It is obvious that you went to great lengths to ensure that residents had something personal and special to open at the Christmas party. I wish you could have seen them open the gifts. It is truly one of my favorite events of the year. It seems that age is NO factor when it comes to experiencing the joy of opening a gift from “Santa.”” -Ombudsman Facility Partner

SENIORS LEADING WITH EXPERIENCE THROUGH VOLUNTEERING RSVP coordinated 1,051 active volunteers with 115 area non-profits and organizations that depend on volunteer services. RSVP impacted 4,171 people including children tutored through the Reading Buddies program. 52 area schools now host 205 volunteers donating 3,947 hours. Overall, RSVP volunteers donated 85,134 hours to serve our community. “ I don’t know what I would do if you didn’t provide transportation to my volunteer assignment. I no longer drive and am partially blind in one eye. Being picked up and delivered at my home allows me to continue volunteering. ” -RSVP Van Rider “My student progressed from guessing words in a book based on the pictures and the first letter to actually finishing a chapter book. The student was so encouraged by successfully completing such a daunting task that she has since decided to become a teacher!”  - Pittman Elementary Reading Buddy

Providing Overnight Shelter for Homeless Women Since beginning in October 2011, Safe to Sleep has sheltered 679 different women, averaging 20-27 ladies per night. The overnight shelter utilizes 78 volunteers and is open every night of the year, 820 nights in a row by the end of 2013. During this year, more than 9,500 hours of overnight, volunteer time has been donated, and 9,709 “bed-nights” have been provided for homeless women in 2013. “Safe to Sleep provided me a place to stay when no other place could. I have found comfort at the shelter along with some great friends. Thanks for the cots, blankets, pillows, sleeping bags and meals along with a listening ear when I am troubled and housing assistance when I needed help. I was even helped with medicine and a doctor when I was sick. Thanks for a hug every once in a while for encouragement and the smile that speaks volumes. I appreciate the volunteers who take time out of their lives to spend time with us. It means so, so much! ” -Safe to Sleep Guest “Just because I have a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Health Administration, it does not mean I can avoid life circumstances. I am a true witness of my unpreventable life circumstance. I found Safe to Sleep through One Door. Safe to Sleep has been a blessing to me. Safe to Sleep has welcomed me, kept me safe and unafraid of where I will sleep. I can say, the volunteers are so giving of themselves and patient with us women that they show not only me but the others caring, support, and their listening ears. When you are lost, have unpreventable life circumstances, hungry and not feeling safe, Safe to Sleep will be there for you. Thank you for being there for me.” -Safe to Sleep Guest

The CCO NETWORK Our faith, voice and vision for a shared life together are making the Ozarks a better place to live! The Council of Churches offers unity through service and provides area churches with opportunities for community outreach. Through the CCO Network, there is a bridge of communication and mutual support through planned, relationshipcentered activities between churches, CCO and the community. The objective is to build the network with a leader from each member church, affiliate member or potential member who serves as a coordinator of news and information flowing from member churches to CCO and the community. Monthly meetings provide insight and conversation about red-flag issues in the community such as hunger, homelessness, children and education. The meetings provide a platform for collaboration among area agencies, churches and businesses to better provide services for the most vulnerable people in the community.

“I want to thank the CCO for the forum they have created with the CCO Network. This monthly gathering of people from various denominations is a safe and positive place to share ideas and generate solutions to problems that plague many in our community. I am always impressed with the prayerful consideration and selfless giving that is represented at the table. I leave the meetings humbled and inspired. It is a blessing and a joy to be serving as a member of this group.” -Claudia Hartner (First and Calvary Presbyterian) “Being a member of the CCO network has been an encouraging and inspirational experience for me. The meetings provide an opportunity for representatives from throughout the faith community to interact together, share information, and join in prayer for our community and the ministry of the CCO. We learn how we can support one another. We learn of unmet needs in the community, as well as positive progress being made to meet the needs. I return to my home congregation energized, hopeful, and ready to share ideas and suggestions for ministry.” -Debbie Esselman (Westminster Presbyterian)
