Who We Are
The Pettis County Community Partnership is an organization with a mission centering on improving the quality of life for Pettis Countians. The goals include matching community assets with community needs, acting as catalyst for community action, and to be a clearinghouse for information availability and exchange.
In 1995, a collaborative was formed to explore forming PCCP. Caring Communities is a program built around strengthening families and is currently the main source of funding for PCCP activities. PCCP is 1 of 20 Community Partnerships throughout Missouri that are part of the Family and Community Trust (FACT). FACT is an important public-private non-profit partnership supporting community-based collaborative efforts throughout Missouri. FACT and its 20 Community Partnerships are an effective, low-cost way for the state to get policy results, deliver services and improve the lives of children and families.
