The KC Mac & Cheese Festival is proud to support The Hope Center.
Over the last 20 years, The Hope Center has planted roots on Kansas City's east side so that east siders are rooted in hope. Because when hope roots, people rise.
The Hope Center mission is “to develop healthy communities in Kansas City where the vulnerable can have hope and flourish.”
Currently, their out of school K-12th grade youth development program and family/community events impact almost 200 children and their families. Growth plans ahead include a new playground area to serve their campus and the community, extension of their Community Garden; continued property development; and – targeted over the next decade of service to the east side – an affordable housing initiative and a vision to renovate our existing church building into a community gathering and events center.
You’re invited to be a part of this transformation through your financial investment to support these efforts.
Through our work together, the east side will flourish, not flounder. Though the east side may be vulnerable, it will also be victorious. Where we find hope, we will find unlimited potential and possibility. To learn more, visit their website at www.hopecenterkc.org
