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.

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.

Prosper Springfield has a goal of reducing poverty in the city and in Greene County five percent by 2030, and it needs your help.

The Community Partnership of the Ozarks said they’re looking for people to apply to be part of the Prosper Springfield Advisory Council.

Prosper Springfield is a collective impact initiative that brings together all those working to fight poverty as well as those who benefit from the work they do, according to its director, Francine Pratt.  It came out of the Springfield Impacting Poverty Commission last year.
