After opening last month, a public ceremony was held to recognize the launch of Council of Churches of the Ozarks Inc.’s new headquarters.
A ribbon-cutting event yesterday took place at 3055 E. Division St., the site of the nonprofit's operations center that previously was owned by SRC Holdings Corp. The 57,000-square-foot building purchase and multimillion-dollar capital campaign started in 2021.
The roughly $8 million new headquarters, 3055 E. Division St., additionally consolidated all of the nonprofit's services into one building.
“Previously, we had one location focusing on foster care, one location focused on food services. We had another location focused on homeless services,” said Jaimie Trussell, CEO of CCO, in a news release. “If you went to the wrong door on the wrong day, you couldn’t access all those services. That could be devasting for some families in need.
"We now have one door where a family in crisis can access everything that we have and start a path out of poverty by uniting with other agencies."
The headquarters is called the Dorsey Levell Ministry Center in honor of the late Rev. Dorsey Levell, who founded the nonprofit and served for 30 years as its CEO.
The project was funded, in part, by a $1 million allocation of American Rescue Plan Act funds from the Greene County Commission, according to the release.
“CCO has been inspiring hope for families, children, seniors and adults for more than 50 years,” Presiding Commissioner Bob Dixon said in the release. “We applaud their vast and rich history and congratulate them on the new Dorsey Levell Ministry Center.”
