Need Help?

Bright Futures Dunklin R-5 exists to help remove barriers so that kids can learn. We realize that when a family struggles, it impacts everyone in the household. Bright Futures Dunklin has a very targeted mission of things that we’re able to assist with. Our primary focus in helping is with students’ immediate needs that impact school – clothing, shoes, school supplies, food, etc. 

We understand that there are a great many other issues that impact our kids, so the way that we often help is by connecting families with community resources that they didn’t realize were available to them. Even though we can’t always be the primary source of assistance, we strive to connect families to resources that might better serve them.

If your family or the family of someone you know is needing help, please contact the counselor where your child attends school. They will know how to assess the situation and help you find the best resource to meet your needs. You can also check out some of our local resources here:
