Ozark Mountain Country Cares
OMC Cares came directly from the groundwork that was laid by the Stone and Taney County Poverty Initiative. After all the town halls, focus groups, site visits, Poverty Summits and research, OMC Cares was launched as a backbone organization to be part of a new framework for our community called Collective Impact. OMC Cares will work closely with Philanthropy Missouri as our philanthropic partner and work to foster high collaboration among non-profits, ministries, policy makers, the business community, foundations, educational institutions, government officials, health care providers and individuals. We are here to collaborate and connect for a greater impact as we work together to serve our neighbors in need. This will be accomplished through the work groups that have been established within the organization and are currently meeting to address issues dealing with housing, transportation, jobs, job skills, how to get the community involved, substance abuse and child care.
