Are you committed to improving the lives of others and strengthening the community in which you live? As a Community Action Agency, our mission is to create lasting solutions to poverty for families and communities within Southwest Missouri. If this aligns with your interests, we would like to talk with you. We currently have board openings in Christian, Taney and Webster counties.

Besides attending meetings, board members help with advocacy, outreach, fundraising, and the sustainability of our programs and projects. OACAC has a tripartite board made up of 1/3 Consumer Advocates, 1/3 Public Officials, and 1/3 Private Interest representatives.
