Over 600 homeless and at-risk individuals were given access to basic needs through a number of services Wednesday.  

The ninth annual HOPE Connection and Veterans Stand Down event was held in the Springfield Expo Center. It’s an initiative of Community Partnership’s Ozarks Alliance to End Homelessness’ month-long “Every Action Counts Campaign.”

Amanda Stadler, Community Partnership’s neighborhood and housing stabilization specialist, said she’s participated in the event for five years, chairing the planning committee the past two.

Community Partnership’s Ozarks Alliance to End Homelessness has launched a new campaign to further its mission.

The “Every Action Counts: A Homeless Awareness Campaign,” announced Wednesday, kicks off a series of events this month and serves as a response to OAEH’s January homeless count.

Amanda Stadler, the organization’s neighborhood and housing stabilization specialist, shared the results of that count during a press conference at the Springfield Art Museum.
