Provision for others is a fundamental responsibility of human life. (Thomas Woodrow Wilson).
There is no saying that could pronounce so clearly all we at Missouri Ozarks Community Action, Inc., do from day to day providing for the needs of other human lives and we do an incredible job. We work diligently every day to accomplish all that needs to be done to better serve our clients.
This year we have successfully finished with the Head Start Monitoring, Weatherization and HUD monitoring, Agency Audit, HUD Audit and Retirement Audit while at the same time, we work diligently to serve our client needs first and foremost. Thank you to each of you who had any part in these reviews. The dedication in wanting this Agency to do well was evidenced by the time, and your work ethics on a day to day basis, making us ready for any inspection on any given day.
I do want to say a very special thank you to the employees of MOCA. I realize it is not often I have the opportunity to say thank you to the best staff any Agency could possibly have. There are times I am certain you probably wonder if I realize all the work each of you perform on a daily basis. Although, I do not tell you personally, I want you to know I am very much aware of your duties and your job performances.
I would be remiss if I would not say a very hearty thank you to our Board of Directors for the outstanding job they do in promoting our mission. We have a full board of twenty four members and they are the most dedicated loyal individuals you could ever find to serve on the Board. They do not receive payment, gratuities, or any benefits, just a tremendous amount of time required from each of them and they give it freely and without complaint.
As always we still have much work to do but I know we are up for the challenges at hand. You have made my life a little easier and job more pleasant. It continues to be a pleasure to work with each of you.
