In 2008, Bryan and Amy Stallings hosted a traditional Thanksgiving dinner for the Branson area’s houseless, hurting and hopeless. Understanding that the community’s lack of resources seeped farther than what a simple Thanksgiving meal could provide, Bryan and Amy launched Elevate Branson full time, and since then, Elevate Branson has steadily expanded the scope of its programs, services, and impact on the community.
Elevate Branson works to empower our neighbors to reach their full potential through weekly outreach, workforce development training, affordable healthcare, sustainable housing, and fellowship opportunities to bring a sense of belonging to the marginalized in our community.
Elevate Branson transforms lives and restores faith. Program participants, volunteers, business partners, community leaders, and others alike converge together at Elevate Branson to serve, build relationships, find restoration, and discover purpose.
