   "Empowering people of need in Northwest Missouri to achieve their goals and improve the quality of their lives"
This has been the mission of Community Services, Inc. since it's inception during the Johnson Administration in the mid 1960's. Community Services, Inc. battles poverty in the counties of Atchison, Gentry, Holt, Nodaway & Worth in Northwest Missouri.
This is achieved through various programs that provide those in need with support from financial to emotional and all aspects in between.

    What is POVERTY? Defined by the Federal Government as a household income at or below $15,510.00 for a family of 2, $19,530.00 for a family of 3, and $23,550.00 for a family of 4.
    In perspective, that's a single mother working a full time job that pays a little better than 9 dollars per hour. Nine dollars and 38 cents per hour to be exact, that is over 2 dollars per hour above the minimum wage rate.
    In perspective, that's a grandmother and a grandfather that worked their entire lives and now live on 1200 dollars per month Social Security.
    In perspective, that's 861,144 men, women and children, or approximately 1 out of every 7 people living in the state of Missouri.
    In perspective, it could be your next door neighbor.

Community Services, Inc. as a part of the Community Action Partnership, administers multiple programs to provide assistance to those in need.
    Programs such as Low Income Heating Assistance providing financial assistance to low income households for help with utility payments.
    Low Income
