CCSOMO is helping with immediate needs, temporary housing, home repairs, and long-term case management
Flooding of historic proportions affected almost all of southern Missouri from Dec. 23 through Jan. 9, 2016.
Catholic Charities of Southern Missouri (CCSOMO) quickly partnered with other relief organizations, including the Red Cross and Salvation Army, to meet the immediate needs of those suffering. Representatives from CCSOMO attended numerous county Community Organizations Active in Disasters (COAD) meetings throughout the diocese to discuss and plan activities. Staffers also attended multiple Resource Fairs and Multi-Agency Resource Centers (MARCs) to personally meet with disaster victims.
