Bright Futures Welcomes Grain Valley as 22nd Affiliate Community



Joplin, Mo. – Bright Futures USA is excited to welcome Grain Valley, Mo. as the 22nd Bright Futures affiliate community.

The Bright Futures initiative began in Joplin in 2010 and expanded throughout the region as a means of helping schools and communities connect to meet student needs. Bright Futures now serves over 90,000 children in the states of Missouri, Kansas, Arkansas, Oklahoma and Virginia.

“Grain Valley is one of several communities in the Kansas City area to take an interest in the Bright Futures initiative recently. We are excited about the addition of Grain Valley as an affiliate community and look forward to supporting them in any manner needed as they implement the program,” said Nancy Good, Chair of the Bright Futures USA Board of Directors.

The Grain Valley R-V School District serves around 3,800 students in its five elementary schools, two middle schools and high school.

Bright Futures USA provides a framework that enables schools to engage businesses, human service agencies, faith-based organizations and parent groups to rally together to meet the needs of their children. This framework partners organizations with schools in a way that helps them to quickly and efficiently meet students’ basic needs, often within 24 hours.
