Caring for Kids Network
Youth ServicesBoard of DirectorsEducationNonprofit Member
Our vision is for all children to have hope and reach their highest potential. Our mission is to mobilize community organizations in partnership with schools to inspire hope and help prepare children to impact their world.
Our mission is accomplished through a proven four-step process to engage the community – churches, businesses, and civic groups/nonprofits – to serve collaboratively around neighborhood schools. We work with the superintendents, district leadership, and the individual school principals to identify potential school partnership projects that best support the goals of an individual school.
We currently serve seven school districts: Kansas City, Missouri; Kansas City, Kansas; Shawnee Mission; Raytown; Hickman Mills; Center; and Grandview.
Our desire is to answer the question, ''How can we help you reach your goals?'' We are not bringing a new program or initiative to the schools. The educators are the experts in educating children, not us. Our expertise is found in our process and training which connects great partners in the community to the schools. Together they will create a unique plan that answers this question and serves the school’s goals for success.
