BEYOND PROGRAMS & FOOD
As a community development corporation, in Springfield, Missouri, Flourish desires reach new people and new places.
We come alongside and work in such a way that those who encounter us will experience LIFE TRANSFORMATION.
How We Work
We build relationshipsWhether you are stopping by a Flourish Food Pantry for the first time, or are engaged in one of our programs, our desire is to get to know you on a personal relationship and help offer life transforming options for your story.
We Transform LivesTransformation happens in many ways with Flourish. It happens in the lives of people who are part of our programs like Jobs for Life, Life Change, and the Coach House. And it happens in the lives of people who volunteer each week.
We Trust God with the ProcessFlourish is a Christian organization. We pray with guests who visit the pantry and we encourage people in their own faith as they navigate life change and transformation.
We partner with community leaders and churches to build relationships and continually seek opportunities to serve the community around us.
We could tell many great stories of life change. Here is one from from Nikki who will soon graduate our Coach House Ministry.
We could tell many great stories of life change. Take a moment to listen to George and Stan as they share the impact of Jobs for Life.
