“Some of the services we provide are things such as Head-Start, weatherization, and energy savings,” says LaFrenz,” We also help folks with bills sometimes if they qualify through our emergency services.  In addition, we also have community development programs.”

There are 18 agencies throughout the state of Missouri and anyone who is in need of support is encouraged to visit their local family resource center.
