Women Rising:

In 2006, a support group for women with domestic violence issues was established. Women between the ages of 15 and 35 who find themselves in the role of single parents are receiving the special help in addressing areas of financial management, job search, child care and parenting issues.  Meetings are held in Cabool at the Cedar Bluff Apartments each Tuesday at 10 a.m., and in Houston at Loretto House.  Call Rita Foster, 417-252-0829 for dates available.  The Texas County Food Pantry collaborates with Christos House in West Plains to provide this program.
