With the holiday giving season now over, it’s easy for people to resume their normal routine and put thoughts of charitable giving behind them. But thanks to a grant gifted by the Community Foundation of the Ozarks, three agencies are giving back to the area’s homeless youth.

CASA of Southwest Missouri, the Victim Center, and Rare breed were gifted a grant of $30,000 earlier this month to work with homeless youth who have been victims of crime. The collaboration is set to begin on Monday.

Beth Atchison is the executive director of the local CASA branch.
