We're here to help!
Since 1997, the Community Partnership has been working with citizens and organizations to match public and private funding, resources, and programs to meet the needs of the communities in Phelps County and the region. The Partnership's mission is to promote awareness of community needs and to work together with citizens and organizations to achieve better results for children, families, and communities.
With the help of the Partnership, a physically challenged child takes his first steps, teens find mentoring programs to help them meet the challenges of parenthood or learn employment skills to help them succeed. Young girls are empowered to make good decisions for themselves and raise their self-esteem, communities band together to keep their streams clean, and childcare providers are enabled to find support and training.
Through the Partnership, the community decides how to best use funds to fit the needs of our community: we work to eliminate duplication of services, to coordinate grants and services across organizations, to stretch state monies as far as possible on needed services. The Partnership provides support for dozens of programs that once operated independently or did not exist before the Partnership was created.
