our mission

Our mission at Ozark Vitality is building partnerships to create a better place to live, work and play in the Ozarks. We are a non-profit resource for community and economic development, focusing on rural communities in the eastern Ozarks of Missouri and Arkansas.

We believe the key to creating sustainable economic growth and prosperity for any of these small communities is regional collaboration, partnering with community leaders, businesses, grant-makers and government to improve the Ozarks as a region. Our projects focus on creative place-making: using the power of art, culture and creativity to ignite positive change and spur economic growth.

Ozark Vitality is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
