The Diaper Bank of the Ozarks has touched the lives of over 55,000 babies over the past 6 years by distributing over 2,000,000 disposable diapers and over 350 cloth diaper starter kits. Between 70 and 80,000 diapers are donated to 40 local partner agencies in Greene County and 29 rural partners reaching into 30 of our outlying counties who then distribute to families in need. The requests for help with diapers come in daily. Single moms or dads, grandparents raising grandchildren while on a fixed income, the unemployed, underemployed, teen moms, and so many more are affected. Another program of the Diaper Bank is Diapers for Daycare, where we stand beside parents who are required to supply diapers to their daycare provider so that they are able to work and bring home a paycheck.

Having reached audiences in Springfield, across the American Midwest, and throughout the world, The Messiah Project Inc. has grown to become one of the most dynamic Christian-based arts organizations in operation today. It is also among the most innovative arts organizations, which has made a reputation for integrating classical music with dance and drama, thereby expanding the music’s impact upon audiences.
We are excited to partner with Life360 Church at the Fairbanks to sponsor Jobs for Life.
Jobs for life is a program that works with the Local Church to break the cycle of joblessness and poverty so families can be restored and children can grow up with hope and a future. Through these programs, communities and entire cities are renewed because purpose and dignity have been restored.
