Our Impact

For over 25 years, Community Partnership has been a trusted leader, catalyst for change, and a valued resource in Springfield and the surrounding region. We are the “go to” organization when there is an emerging issue that needs to be addressed; we bring people together to create solutions. Our four primary focus areas as follows:

  • Affordable Housing & Homeless Prevention
  • Community & Neighborhood Development
  • Early Childhood & Family Development
  • Prevention & Youth Support

Although our programs and services have grown in number and variety over time, our mission remains the same: to facilitate and promote the building of resilient children, healthy families, and strong neighborhoods & communities. Through programming, resource development, and partnership, we are actively working to create the kind of communities we all want to live in.

Our Numbers

Last year, we served 111,005 people through our services, programming and community education and awareness campaigns.

13,280 volunteers contributed 52,154 hours along with donated services valued at $2,809,304 to help us meet our mission of building resilient children, healthy families and strong neighborhoods & communities.

In our more than 25-year history, we have remained a trusted leader, a catalyst for change, and a valued resource for solving issues in Springfield and the surrounding region. We are the “go to” organization when there is an emerging issue that needs to be addressed – we bring people together to create solutions.

Community Partnership remains a wise investment with a track record of success.  Last year, for every dollar of Caring Communities State funding received, we leveraged an additional $15.14 in resources for our community.  That’s a 151% return on investment!

Your support of Community Partnership is an investment in our community’s children, families and neighborhoods. Because of you, we are able to help improve the quality of life for all of us.
