Christian Associates success is almost entirely the result of generous gifts from a wide range of donors. There are two categories of donors, those who donate money and goods and those who donate their time. If you are seeking a pleasant and worthwhile way to give of your time, please go to the VOLUNTEER link for more information or call Christian Associates at 417-739-3200. If you anticipate a donation of things such as clothing, furniture or perhaps food items, please go the THRIFT SHOP link.

If you are considering a donation of money, property, securities or other property of substantial value, please contact Christian Associates at 417-739-3200 for assistance.

For your convenience, Christian Associates has arranged for on-line giving. This feature uses PAYPAL, a secure and user-friendly service that receives credit card donations and deposits the funds into a Christian Associates account.

Christian Associates Mission Statement:

Uniting our community and lighting the way toward a better tomorrow.

We do this in many ways. Some of the ways we do this are:

  • We feed the hungry. Over 78,000 pounds of food was distributed last year. That is 39 TONS of food!
  • We provide safety, shelter, and hope through our Domestic Violence Center
  • We helped keep families in their homes through our homeless prevention services. Over $100,000 was provided to individuals and families!
  • We provide affordable housing to all age groups.
  • We facilitate opportunities for neighbors to help their neighbors through their gifts of time, talent and resources.
  • We provide two community Thrift Stores where community members can volunteer, shop low cost goods, donate to, and receive necessary daily living items such as clothing, household goods and furniture
  • To the best of our ability we strive to create “partnerships” within our community to meet the needs of our community.
