New Community Service Work Coordinator - Tom Creel

Tom Creel is the newly hired Community Service Work Coordinator for Douglas County.

Tom has a B.S. in Political Science and an M.A. in Sociology from the University of Central Missouri. Tom has spent the majority of his career with the Missouri Department of Corrections where he worked as a Substance Abuse Counselor and most recently an Adult Education Teacher.
Office hours for the Community Service Work program will be slightly reduced for the month of September with appointment hours of Monday, Thursday, and Friday from 10 am  - 5 pm. This reduction in hours will allow Tom time to get out in the community and visit the great non-profits and government agencies the County partners with to find placements for community service workers.

Margo Moore will continue as part time support staff. Margo is capable of meeting with clients and will provide additional assistance during the transition.
The CSW generic email,, is maintained by multiple people and will remain operational. This is the most appropriate channel of communication, but if there are any urgent issues, please “CC” Heather Krase-Minnick at
