Background Statement
Redemptorist Social Services Center is a lifeline to the poor and elderly of Kansas City…widows left behind in a changing city; the working poor; the sick; the homebound and the homeless; the emotionally and mentally challenged. Our mission is to prevent a temporary crisis from becoming a permanent tragedy. The Center’s programs of assistance stabilize individuals, families and neighborhoods, with long-term results benefiting the entire community.

 

The Center opened in September of 1986 to serve the needs of the aging in mid-town Kansas City. In 1997, the Center moved from its original location in the elementary school on West Linwood, to the lower level of the Retirement Home, also on West Linwood. In July of 2000, the Retirement Home closed and the Center took over the entire building. Redemptorist Social Services Center incorporated as its own non-profit organization in November of 2001, and received its 501(c) 3 letter of recognition on July 1, 2002. Redemptorist Center is a non-sectarian, non-denominational agency.

 The Center’s programs soon evolved from only senior services to a full range of programs providing over 1,900 assists each month to people in need. Our service area includes 31 of the 58 zip codes in Kansas City; Medical Assistance is available to all residents of Jackson and Wyandotte Counties; Victim of Crime Assistance is available to all residents of Jackson County; 95% of our clients live at or below the poverty level. Programs and services offered by the Center are available to all persons in our service area regardless of race, ethnicity, age or gender, underserved or underinsured.

 

  • Emergency Client Assistance: Assists clients with rent, utility and medical payments; food, clothing and transportation; education and work related needs.
  • Senior Services: Includes Saturday meal delivery to the homebound; minor home repairs; emergency assistance services; health and wellness screenings; free legal counsel.
  • Legal Assistance: The Center partners with a group of attorneys who provide free legal counsel to our clients.
  • Health Maintenance: A free ongoing program staffed by area health care professionals. It provides basic human dignity products that are not covered by government assistance (Food Stamps) such as toilet paper, soap, toothpaste diapers, cleaning products, etc.; health and dental screenings; nutritional and disease prevention education; home health assessment for the homebound; flu shots.


Impact Statement

Since 1986, Redemptorist Social Services Center continues to be the first line of defense for people facing chronic poverty; the low income; the elderly; the homebound and the homeless; the newly and long term unemployed. Many of our clients are the working poor who live so close to the edge of poverty that a minor obstacle such as a car breakdown can lead to a downward financial spiral that’s impossible to reverse. They are trapped in a cycle of dead-end jobs without benefits or opportunities for advancement and struggle every day to simply survive. Their average annual income of $3,000 to $9,600 is immediately consumed with the basic needs of survival for themselves and their families…shelter, utilities and food. Without assistance they are doomed to fall behind with no hope of catching up.

 

2015 Achievements:

 

  • The Center was the only agency providing multiple services from one site to 31 Jackson County zip codes.
  • Dental assistance: The Center was the only agency consistently meeting the increased demand for dental assistance.
  • Utilities: The Center was the only agency assisting with water and electric bills year round and not just seasonal
  • The Center used all received grant funding to leverage an additional $38,000 for our programs to help people in crisis

Programs
Description

Emergency Client Assistance meets the basic needs of individuals facing chronic poverty by providing direct assists at critical times with shelter, utility and medical expenses, food, clothing and transportation, education and work related needs. The program goal is to provide a stabilizing force in the lives of individuals and families in crisis.

Case management is the operational format for the Center’s work with clients. We work with each client to address the immediate crisis; access other needs; review client resources; set achievable, measurable goals; establish a budget and plan of action. All services the Center provides are carefully documented; detailed, confidential client records are maintained. A key part of attaining projected outcomes is client participation. Whenever possible, each client  participates in payments and an ongoing budget. This process gives them a sense of ownership and pride in achieving and maintaining stability for themselves and their families.

Short-Term Success

The Center defines short term success in terms of working with the client to handle the presenting crisis and lay the groundwork for financial stability. Clients remain in their homes after 90 days with the utilities on, and are now in a position to continue the learning process of handling the challenges of daily life.

Long-Term Success

The Center defines long term success when individuals have developed strategies, actions and routines that enable them to achieve financial self-sufficiency in order to maintain a stable environment for themselves and their families.

Program Success Monitored By

Case management is the operational format for the Center’s work with clients. During the interview process to address the immediate crisis, underlying needs are revealed such as job loss, chronic illness, death of sole provider, etc. We work with each client to address the initial crisis; access other needs; review client resources; set achievable, measurable goals; establish a budget and plan of action; monitor and verify the plan. Client information is entered into the MAAC (Mid America Assistance Coalition) Link system, enabling us to track services and expenditures. All services the Center provides are carefully documented; detailed, confidential client records are maintained. A key part of attaining projected outcomes is client participation. Whenever possible, each client must participate in payments and in an ongoing budget. This process gives individuals a sense of ownership and pride in achieving and maintaining stability for themselves and their families.

This program helps the elderly enjoy a better quality of life and remain safely in their homes. It includes Saturday Meal Delivery to the homebound; minor home repairs; emergency  assistance services; free legal assistance; health and wellness screenings. Home visits are scheduled with each new participant in the Saturday Meal Delivery program to assess the living situation and potential ways in which the Center can have a positive effect on the safety and quality of life of the individual. These visits often bring to light client needs that the Center can immediately handle: food, clothing, shelter, utility and medical assistance, etc. They also alert us to unmet needs that are crucial to the overall safety and well-being of the elderly.

Description

A free ongoing program staffed by area health care professionals. It provides basic human dignity products that are not covered by government assistance (Food Stamps) such as toilet paper, soap, toothpaste, diapers, cleaning products, etc.; health  screenings; nutritional and disease prevention education; home health assessment for the homebound.

Population Served Poor,Economically Disadvantaged,Indigent, ,
Short-Term Success The Center defines short term success by healthcare programs/referrals that provide education to the clients, by the number who take advantage of provided services such as flu shots, skin cancer and other health screenings.
Long-Term Success Many of the Center's clients are in need of health education and the opportunity to see health care professionals for screenings. As a result, the Center defines long term success for this program by the number and variety of educational opportunities we provide for our clients, by the number of referrals that are generated by the screenings and by the relationships that are established between the clients and the health care professionals. In many cases, these clients are only able to see a health care professional after making an initial contact through the Center.
Program Success Monitored By

The Center tracks individuals receiving flu and pneumonia shots, lead testing referrals, and number of clients receiving human dignity products and medical equipment and supplies.

Examples of Program Success

The Center has strengthened collaborations with health care providers throughout metropolitan Kansas City who provide vendor discounts to our clients: Swope Parkway Medical Center, New Life Hearing Center, Spalitto’s Pharmacy, UMKC Dental School, Seton Health Center, etc. This insures individuals of receiving maximum financial and service benefits to help them with their medical need while increasing program visibility.

CEO Comments

Redemptorist Social Services Center is grateful to  grantors and donors who enable us to provide a full range of emergency services to 31 Kansas City zip codes. The Center's continuing success  depends on the impressive and dedicated efforts of our volunteer base of over 200 people who collectively contribute hundreds of hours each month. Many have worked in fields such as social security, nursing, social services and education providing a wealth of knowledge and insight that is beneficial in all they do for the Center.

 
Expanded service area:

The Center works closely with United Way’s 2-1-1 Information & Referral Line to identify unmet needs and areas in need of service agencies. We are their 2nd most referred agency consistently assisting with 8 of the top 10 most requested needs. The Center is fortunate to be in a position that allowed us to quickly respond to the growing need by increasing our service area. 

 

Community Relationships:

Redemptorist Center works closely with state and local nonprofit agencies such as Salvation Army, MOCSA (Metropolitan Organization Combating Sexual Abuse), Jackson County Prosecuting Attorney/Victim Assistance, Collaboration Works, The Children’s Division, Seton Center, Westport Cooperative Services and Hospice Care. Area health care providers such as Swope Parkway, Truman Medical Center, Truman Eye Clinic, UMKC School of Dentistry and St. Luke’s Hospital are part of our ongoing Health Maintenance program. The Center partners with agencies that do not have their own emergency assistance programs in order to provide direct assists to their clients. The Center is a board member with the local EFSP (FEMA) Food and Shelter program, and actively involved with Mid America Coalition’s Agency Relations Committee. These collaborations of interest result in more effective ways to best serve people in need.

 
Key partners:

The Center maintains strong alliances with metropolitan utility providers to help resolve client payment issues, and with health care providers who provide vendor discounts to our clients. When a single agency cannot meet all of the client’s needs, the Center will partner with other agencies that specialize in a specific area- United Services, Westport Cooperative Services, Seton Center, the Housing Information Center, etc. This insures that individuals will receive maximum financial and service benefits to help them with their needs.

CEO Comments

The number of individuals and families in need is increasing, but the available dollars to provide assists is decreasing. Many service/assistance providers are out of funding and people are being turned away. An incredible demand is placed on agencies such as the Center who are still able to provide direct client services.

 

  • Many of our clients work at minimum wage in service related, temporary and day labor jobs that are the first to suffer in an uncertain economy that is already seeing a dramatic increase in the cost of living.
  • As energy costs continue to rise, so will the amount of funding needed to provide assistance with gas, water & electricity.
  • The economy continues to affect people living at or below the poverty level of income, and has created a new face of need… people who always held a job and never needed to seek assistance.
  • Shelter: Rent is one of the top five most requested needs for assistance and one of the most unmet needs due to lack of funding.
  • The Center’s service area of 31 Kansas City zip codes includes the 11 zip codes having the highest rate of poverty and the fewest service providers.
  • Several major funders are no longer funding direct client services to the poor and elderly.

 

Overcoming challenges:
 

  • Identify at least one new funding source annually.
  • Leverage received grant funding in order to maximize assistance provided to clients.
  • Stretch resources by requiring clients to participate in budget/payment plans.
  • Utilize the expertise and abilities of volunteers in order to keep paid staff positions at a minimum.
  • Collaborate with other agencies that specialize in a specific area of client assistance.
  • Continue strengthening collaborations with health care providers throughout metropolitan Kansas City who will provide vendor discounts to our clients.
  • Increase awareness of the Center and how vital it is to the community we serve.
  • Develop new fundraising events.
