Ozark Share & Care is a community-sponsored non-profit emergency services program. The organization started in 1987, and has grown to be an essential part of the Harrison community. Emergency food, clothing, household items, bedding, and furniture is provided (as available) for anyone in need, regardless of geographic location. Other services primarily limited to Boone County residents, although exceptions made for extreme need. Proof of income is required to determine eligibility, which is 200% of the poverty level. Any person who demonstrates need for services will be assisted, regardless of race, religion, nationality, physical, or mental abilities. Any rigid income eligibility requirement is rarely used as a guide to receive any services from this program, so that assistance can be provided to all those who are truly in need.

“If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need, but has no pity on him, then how can the Love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue, but with actions and with truth.”
1 John 3:17-18
