Helping people. Changing Lives. Engaging communities to end poverty.
A world free of poverty
Community Action Partnership of Greater St. Joseph began its service to Andrew, Buchanan, Clinton and DeKalb counties in 1965. Today, we continue to be an organization that relies on the generosity of others to make a difference in the lives of those in need and encourage a hand up towards self-sufficiency. Since that time, we’ve grown to become one of the region’s largest non-profit 501(c)(3)s dedicated to engaging communities to end poverty.
Community Action Partnership of Greater St. Joseph is an agency of the statewide Missouri Community Action Network. Together, Missouri’s 19 Community Action Agencies are helping people and changing lives in all 114 counties. Learn more at www.missourican.org.
