Catholic Charities Adds Services

The Joplin office of Catholic Charities of Southern Missouri (CCSOMO) has now transitioned from disaster case management to an emphasis on its broader programs for those in need. Services provided locally include mental health counseling, homeless prevention services, housing and financial counseling, and family strengthening services. CCSOMO continues to participate in repairing and rebuilding homes and two homes are currently under construction. CCSOMO became active in Joplin immediately following the 2011 May tornado and was the largest provider of disaster case management services in the state of Missouri, serving over 7,000 area individuals. CCSOMO has used 20,000 volunteers who contributed 149,219 hours of service to complete over 150 re-build projects. The Joplin office is located at 403 E. 4th St. For more information, call 417-624-3790.
