Community Partnership of the Ozarks

A one-day event to help the Ozarks’ homeless population is in need of volunteers.

The Community Partnership’s Ozarks Alliance to End Homelessness will host the ninth annual Hope Connection and Veterans Stand Down November 15.  The event will give homeless individuals access to essential services and will also feature specific services for veterans.

Each guest seeking services will be paired with a community volunteer to help navigate services and provide one on one support.

Many years ago the Springfield Park Board granted permission to the Southwest Missouri Art and Craft Guild to put on a small art and crafts festival in Sequiota Park in southeast Springfield.  23 years later, Art in the Park, the Guild's annual fine art and contemporary craft show and sale the second weekend of October, now hosts artists from all over the country—this year Alabama, Oklahoma and Kansas are represented in addition to Missouri and Arkansas artists and crafters.
