The mission of Douglass Community Services is to be a trusted partner in building stronger kids, stronger families and stronger communities throughout Northeast Missouri. In 2020, the Food Pantry provided 48% more food than in 2019. We saw a 25% increase in clients. 45% of the food provided was fruits, vegetables, or proteins and 90,311 meals were served to youth. Douglass Community Service is honored to be on the frontlines fighting hunger in our community. Other services offered by Douglass Community Services are a Head Start/ Early Head Start learning program, Kids in Motion (a youth pre-employment/service-learning program), and Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA).
