Based in a struggling North Springfield neighborhood, Life360 Community Services is reversing poverty’s effects on families in Missouri. In collaboration with our partners, we are enhancing the well-being of underserved and at-risk individuals from the time they leave the cradle to the moment they enter the workforce.
Revitalizing a community requires meeting its most basic needs. In the Missouri farm towns that feed America, 1 in 4 low-income families are worried their kids do not have enough to eat between lunch and breakfast the following day. We partner with Missouri schools and the USDA to fuel the growing minds and bodies of students afterschool to reverse the damaging effects of food insecurity.
Due to overlapping factors outside their control, many at-risk and homeless adolescents are denied the opportunity of a fresh start. Regardless of their potential, grit, and desire to change, these youth are forced to remain in poverty’s grip. We believe in second chances, so we created three housing projects to be the launching pads for at-risk youth to achieve independence.
Affordable Daycare & Preschool
Our early childhood program is dedicated to providing a safe, supportive, and developmentally appropriate environment for young children. We seek to provide a warm, nurturing setting that encourages children to learn through hands-on interactive exploration.
Jobs For Life
Jobs For Life helps prepare men and women for meaningful work through relationships, mentoring, work-force development training, and ongoing community of support.
Adventure courses, rockets, swimming, and more. This action-packed daycamp gets kids excited about learning during the summer. Music, dance, stories, poems, and science experiments are showcased at the grand finale Camp Fairbanks Talent Show.
Royal Family Kids Camp
Royal treatment, for kids who need it most.
Throughout their lives, children in foster care have been abused, neglected, told that they don’t matter and forgotten. Royal Family KIDS Camp works to create life-changing moments for children in foster care.
