The Livingston County Community Foundation has awarded a $5,000 grant to the Community Action Partnership of North Central Missouri, also known as Green Hills Community Action Agency, to be used for women’s health services clinic supplies and equipment in Livingston County. CAPNCM has been offering family planning services in rural north Missouri since 1969. At their mobile clinic in Chillicothe, women can receive their annual breast and reproductive exams, family planning education and other related services. They also provide limited services to men, most often related to STD screening and reproductive health. The funds from this grant will be used to buy needed items and supplies for their Chillicothe location at 511 Elm Street. The Livingston County Community Foundation was organized in 1998 by the Long-Range Planning Committee of the Chillicothe Chamber of Commerce to set up a permanent endowment which will grant funds to other Livingston County non-profits to help fulfill their objectives. The foundation’s major areas of interest are economic development, community services, rural development, education, community health and welfare, youth, and arts and humanities. Since its beginning, the foundation has made 105 grants totaling more than $640,000 to non-profit organizations serving Livingston County.
