Southern Ozarks Alliance for Rural Development
The Southern Ozarks Alliance for Rural Development (SOAR) is dedicated to raising awareness and funds to increase income opportunities and educational levels of citizens in the southern Ozarks Region of Missouri. Our mission is to improve the quality of life in the communities we serve by working together with citizens from all walks of life who share our common goals for a better future. To support this mission, representatives of communities within the southern Ozarks Region serve on a Board of Directors, providing leadership in the areas of advocacy, resource development and planning. Our mission will be achieved by working with area communities to provide attainable educational opportunities, economic development and access to affordable housing, technology and transportation.
The SOAR Board’s vision is to improve conditions in this Ozarks area so every individual can thrive, not just survive.
