Social Services

Working for the Community

The Lafayette County Social Services Committee was formed to create collaboration throughout Lafayette County by pooling resources and working together to effect change.

a. Information, resources and activities sharing (regular meetings; attendance; share info)
b. Problem solving to address community goals and issues (take action when needed)
c. Develop new resources for the county (create new partnerships)

Currently, the Connectors/Social Services group meets the third Thursday of each month at 10 a.m. via Zoom. There is a different guest speaker at each meeting.  To become a Connector or have your organization become involved in this program, your organization/agency must be a member of the HCC General Membership.

Our community-based programs include case management, counseling and assessment, health education, transportation, translation services, enrollment assistance, health and social care advocacy initiatives, access to primary care, and health IT.
HCC and its Community Health Centers serve all patients regardless of ability to pay. Discounts for essential services are offered based on family size and income. Schedule a visit: 660.259.2440.
After more than a decade and nearly 50 new employees later, it’s safe to say that the Lexington, MO-based HCC Network is a major player in Lafayette County and in rural health care in this region.
The focus of HCC is to develop and implement programs that are responsive to documented health needs of county residents, with specific health status indicators as benchmarks of progress.
