Missouri Nonprofits

Many Missouri nonprofits focus on issues like patient comfort in hospitals, assisting the impoverished, disaster relief, and senior care. Here are three examples of well-respected nonprofits that have addressed such issues in the state for many years.

Healing Photo Art

Because a hospital stay can be an incredibly stressful and scary time for anyone, Healing Photo Art works to provide some comfort to patients across the country. Founded by photographer Elaine Poggi, this nonprofit brings gorgeous photographs of the world’s natural beauty into hospital rooms to help put patients at ease during their time there. Patients can request specific images or themes or even receive a variety of images that change during their stay. Research shows that nature can do wonders for someone who’s ill or healing, which is why this nonprofit seeks to add natural beauty to the sterile world of a hospital to help patients’ bodies and minds.

Assistance League-Kansas City

The Assistance League’s Kansas City branch offers many programs to help young people struggling due to their home environment or economic status. Its programs vary in scope and impact, but focus on providing teddy bears to children in crisis, clothing kids in kindergarten through the 5th grade, providing free party supplies to families for celebrations, and improving the lives of kids and families that may have difficulty making ends meet. The Assistance League of Kansas City also offers scholarships for students entering college and outreach services for senior living homes to brighten the days of the area’s elderly residents.

Compassion Services International

When natural disasters strike, they can devastate the lives of people and leave them in need of assistance. Founded by Christians looking to give back to the world in times of need, this nonprofit offers help to impacted areas in the form of global disaster relief programs and medical missions that provide free health screenings for the impoverished. It also provides educational programs that promote English as a second language (ESL) and computer skills to residents in other nations as well as other forms of humanitarian aid. Compassion Services International is dedicated to helping anyone affected by a natural disaster — regardless of their economic status, beliefs, or geographic location.
