Missouri's Community Partnerships
Caring Communities is one of 20 Community Partnerships serving the state of Missouri.
The Missouri Department of Social Services contracts with Caring Communities to serve in a partnership role. Our partnership is not a state agency, it is a private not-for-profit with a 501c3 status.
Missouri's Community Partnerships are coordinated through Missouri's Family and Community Trust known as FACT. There are only a handful of states across the nation that have similar partnership models. For more information on FACT and other community partnerships in Missouri click on FACT's logo below.
