Building Community Bridges
The vision of Building Community Bridges is to change the direction of our community youth to divert them from paths of poverty, substance use, and criminal activity and breaking down barriers to their future wealth, healthy lifestyle, and productive citizenship. The mission of Building Community Bridges is to inspire, uplift and aid youth development through self-awareness, education, entrepreneurship and community issues that impact their daily lives.
Jefferson City Public Schools Foundation
The Jefferson City Public Schools Foundation is a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization dedicated to raising funds to support teachers and students of the Jefferson City School District. Their mission is to champion a legacy of excellence where possibility becomes reality for every student in JC Schools. The Foundation would use the funds raised at the event to fulfil needs directly throughout JC Schools, in a variety of ways, scholarships, teacher and school grants, and more! Now more than ever our community needs to support our teachers and students.
Casa (Court Appointed Special Advocates)
CASA volunteers are everyday people committed to making a difference for abused and neglected children in Cole County who might otherwise slip through the cracks of an overburdened foster care system. They are appointed by the judge to guide one child or sibling group through the system to safe, permanent and nurturing homes.
Because CASA volunteers serve on one case at a time, they truly get to know the child and can give each case the sustained, personal attention it deserves.
