Who We Are

We are a non-profit organization based in Rolla, Missouri. Our journey began in 1997 with a commitment to identifying and providing essential services to children, youth, and families in mid-Missouri. Now, twenty-five years later, our programs continue to meet the needs of teen parents, youth in foster care, children with disabilities, childcare providers, and young children at risk of neglect and abuse. Our organization is overseen by a board of directors and is funded through state contracts, foundation grants, and individual donations.

Why We Do It


Our programs work to achieve the following core results:

  • Children are safe
  • Children and families are healthy
  • Children are ready to enter school
  • Youth are successful in school and ready to enter the workforce
  • Parents are working

The Community Partnership believes that our programs and services enhance the well-being of children, youth, and families in the communities we serve.

The mission of The Community Partnership is to support the development of healthy, thriving communities by promoting awareness of needs, creating and implementing services and partnerships to help meet those needs, while encouraging individual responsibility.
