Our Mission



CORE is a non-profit Christian ministry designed as an intentional and dedicated outreach to the alcoholic and addicted of the community of the Branson, Missouri area. In a cooperative effort with concerned community leaders, the local base was established in 1995 as an outreach to the “working poor” of the area during the economic expansion of the mid-nineties. Since that time, the ministry has evolved to include housing as well as supportive and instructional services to addicts and alcoholics in our community.

This outreach has been blessed with phenomenal growth during the past years and has expanded both the diversity of services and scope of outreach in our effort to fulfill our mission statement. The staff of CORE Branson has grown to meet the increased demands of the ministry but the largest expansion has been among our Auxiliary Staff including the many volunteers who have enlisted to help meet the needs of the many men and women reaching out to find a new way of life free of the crippling addictions of their past.

CORE relies upon for leadership and is accountable to the members of a supportive local Board of Directors. Funding sources are varied; these include governmental grants, foundations, tithes and offerings, as well as individual contributions. These funds make up 90% of a growing budget.
