How to Help

You can help make a difference 


The Care Service is an organization that thrives due to the support of our community, which is demonstrated by nearly 100,000 hours of volunteer assistance received each year both internally and from the greater community, including through collaboration with many churches across multiple religions. In addition to volunteer assistance, the Care Service would not be able to deliver our programs and services to thousands without the generous monetary gifts from individuals, businesses, churches, civic groups and other organizations. By partnering with the Care Service, you are providing hope to the many individuals and families in crisis and great need in our area. Look below to find a way to help that's right for you.

Emergency Response Fund

More than 10 inches of rain fell on our area over three days starting right after Christmas. At least 15 people in Missouri were killed due to the flooding. Thousands that were forced to leave their homes are only now able to return and begin the clean-up process – if their homes were still standing.

Beginning last Saturday through this week, several Multi-Agency Recourses Centers (MARCs) will be set up in locations across our region. Those that were impacted by the flood can come to have their needs assessed and then access services.

Sts. Joachim & Ann Care Service is a first responder.

Executive Director Miriam Mahan lamented that many who attended the MARC in Franklin County this last weekend were disappointed. “One by one they were told that they had no money to help. In the meantime, the Care Service is trying to let the world know about the devastating struggles of those that were affected.”

Sts. Joachim & Ann Care Service has received many calls for assistance. If you wish to help those affected in our local area, tax deductable donations can be made through the donate button on this page:

Other Ways to Help...

Financial contributions are important for client assistance and for daily operations which keep our programs running, and enable us to to deliver the highest level of services to the most people possible.

There are lots of ways your contributions help us to deliver services to our clients. While we receive grants and other funds for direct services to our clients, operational funds and funds for other critical needs or emergencies are more difficult to come by. While you can specify if you would like to donate to a particular program, unrestricted donations provide us with more flexibility to serve clients by addressing the greatest immediate needs regardless of the source of funding. Whether you make an unrestricted contribution or specify a restricted use, we are grateful for your support. To make a donation via PayPal, click on one of the choices below.
