Neat Repeats Thrift Store
Located next to Rosie Jo’s in Ozark, Neat Repeats is a clothing resale shop that funds Freedom’s Rest. Donating your gently worn clothing not only provides funding from resale but may also provide our clients with attire appropriate for job interviews or to replenish a wardrobe left behind. Shopping at Neat Repeats is a great way to provide your family with inexpensive clothing while helping fund the shelter. Next time you or a friend have clothes to donate or just want to go shop, please remember Neat Repeats!

Donating Household Items
Think of the items your family needs on an average trip to Wal-Mart. The shelter needs these same items times 16! Any hygiene products, food, laundry products, household items, children’s reading materials and toys are always appreciated. Just drop them by Neat Repeats or call our office at 582.0344 for other locations available for drop-off.


The Christian County Family Crisis Center’s shelter, Freedom’s Rest is a federally and state recognized not-for-profit corporation. It began in 1996 when a group of citizens, concerned about the growing epidemic of domestic violence, formed a task force to address the problem and provide services.  In 2003, our Board of Directors accepted the donated use of a privately owned facility for a shelter.  With the support of local churches, businesses, civic groups and individuals, the shelter was renovated and opened as Freedom’s Rest in 2004. We are the only shelter in Christian County, serving residents throughout southwest Missouri. We also cooperate with other shelters when the need arises to place victims out of their local area for their safety. Women and children fleeing from a dangerous situation, regardless of home domicile, are welcome at our shelter.

We are currently able to house 17 adults and their children in a temporary safe haven, while teaching them the skills needed to begin life anew.
