Ozarks Reach Out
Growing a Unified Community.


Ozarks Reach Out is here because we love where we live.  There may be other places as beautiful, but the people in the Ozarks are fantastic - they care, they are compassionate and they show it.   If we want our community to improve, we have to be part of making that happen.  If you want to help, but don't know where or how to get started - we are here for you.

Everyone has something they care about - whether that’s autism, homelessness, or veterans.  If you want to help, contact us and we will match you with a local organization that shares the same cause you do.

ORO also hosts a number of monthly events, here’s what’s coming up:


Craft Beer &

Crafting 4 Cats

Want to meet new friends over craft beer while crafting toys for a local rescue? Well then, this is the event you've been waiting for. No special creative ability needed because frankly, cats don't care what a toy looks like. They just want something to bat around while they wait for their forever home. We'll have the materials, you bring a thirst for meeting new people.

Next Event - Tuesday, June 27, 6:30 PM @ Springfield Brewing Company (301 S. Market)

Free Event! Donations accepted.  All proceeds go to Watching Over Whiskers.


Sun and Tree

Do you or someone you know need a creative space to perform in? Every second Thursday ORO hosts an all ages, family friendly Open Mic. This is a great place to get your first performance in. See yourself and others shine and grow. Prizes are awarded to top performers and to random audience members.

Next Event - Thursday, July 13, 7:30 PM @ Springfield Improv (308 South Avenue)

Free to Enter, $5 Suggested Donation.


Ozarks Reach Out Expo

Food, music, and presentations will took place throughout the afternoon for this free family friendly event.


Inform You about community organizations, Issues, and resources.

Empower You to utilize your unique strengths to help your community.

Connect You to other people who value kindness and service.

Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve.... You don’t have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.
— Martin Luther King Jr.
