The mission of the Caring Council is to link services and resources to enhance the opportunities for children and families to achieve their highest potential. The Caring Council is dedicated to strengthening families, schools, and communities, and to promoting coordination and cooperation between social service providers, churches, the business community, and the educational system, in order to empower families and individuals to become more self-reliant, responsible, and resourceful.
The Dunklin/Stoddard Caring Council is one of twenty community partnerships throughout Missouri supported by the Family and Community Trust. These partnerships form a unique network to focus on six core result areas: Parents Working, Children Safe, Children Ready to Enter School, Children & Families Healthy, Children & Youth Succeeding in School and Youth Ready to Enter the Workforce. For more information on Family and Community Trust, visit their website at http://mofact.org/.
