General

  • Mission:
  • Community Council is the catalyst that brings together people, organizations and resources to build a stronger, healthier and more compassionate community.

  • Overview:
  • Community Council works to build the capacity of nonprofit and other human service providers through collaboration, education, training, resource sharing and networking. The Council's primary focus is fragile families, those experiencing homelessness, hunger or in need of affordable housing options. The Council serves as the lead agency for the Tri-County Continuum of Care and managing agency for the Homeless Management Information System for St. Charles, Lincoln and Warren Counties, one of the fastest growing areas of Missouri.

    To foster collaboration and community connections, Community Council is a membership organization with 140 nonprofit, government, education, healthcare, ministry and business members. Members meet monthly to learn about human service initiatives and network. These luncheons are also open to the public and provide a means of educating the community about the programs available to help people in need.

    Community Council's premiere event is the annual Community Services Summit, now entering its 17th year. The Summit is a one-day conference at which professionals working with children and families can learn from expert speakers about today's most pertinent topics. The 2014 Summit included these topics: extreme, explosive behavior in children and adults; pitfalls of social media; becoming a trauma informed school; how to connect homeless families to community resources; bi-polar disorder indepth; using play therapy to help children with anxiety; animal assisted therapy; mandated reporter training; prescription drug abuse; teen traffic safety; and human trafficking. More than 600 professionals participated in this year's Summit, which also included a resource fair with more than 90 human service providers exhibiting information about their services.

    Throughout the year, the Council continues to provide training to nonprofit and human service organizations through its Building Leadership Skills Together series. These trainings are aimed at providing new and emerging management staff with the skills they need to better lead within their organizations. Topics have included: HR 101; HR legal issues; leadership development; understanding diversity; generations in the workplace; and substance abuse in the workplace.

    The Council's Fragile Families Initiative operates the Tri-County Continuum of Care and the Homeless Management Information System, as well as consults with local municipalities regarding issues affecting low-income families. The Continuum of Care is a collaborative group of about 40 nonprofit and government organizations addressing poverty issues in our region. The group meets monthly for training, professional development, sharing of information and resources, and community planning.
