Mission Statement Mt. Carmel Redevelopment Corporation's (MCRC) mission is improve the quality of life for residents of northeast Wyandotte County through community revitalization and economic development. MCRC envisions revitalized neighborhoods with quality, affordable housing, access to basic human services and sustained economic development.
Background Statement The Mount Carmel Redevelopment Corporation (MCRC) was formed in 1994 to serve as the catalyst for revitalization of the neighborhood located in the heart of Kansas City, Kansas. Working with stakeholders; residents and business owners in the community, and a professional Urban Planner, MCRC developed a Master Plan for redevelopment of a four square block area around the Mt. Carmel Church of God in Christ. The long-range master redevelopment plan for this area -- bounded by 11th Street on the east, 13th Street on the west, Parallel Parkway on the north, and Garfield Avenue on the south -- planned for construction of 48 new affordable single family homes, as well as construction of the Breidenthal Youth and Family Community Center, and also a 61 unit Senior Housing Facility and Activity Center. The MCRC is a 501(c)(3) community development corporation with a volunteer Board of Directors from varied professional backgrounds. To date, $18.5 million of the $27 million Master Plan has been completed. MCRC, in a partnership with the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Kansas City built and operates the 45000 sq. ft. Breidenthal Youth and Family Community Center. The center was completed and opened in November 2006 at a cost of $8.4million. It houses a child development center for 100 children, gymnasium, youth activity rooms, other multipurpose rooms, community outreach services, and MCRC administrative office space. MCRC's uniqueness lies in the fact that we have united community revitalization or the brick and mortar aspect of our community redevelopment corporation, with our human services. MCRC has a matrix of programs to carry out its mission, offering components of that accentuate one another, working in concert to accomplish the master plan, each having its own niche in holistic service delivery to the community. In 2002, MCRC became the managing Willa Gill Multi-Service Complex, which houses the KCK USD 500 School District& Title I Program that provides homeless families/ children in the school district, Hot Lunch Services Inc., which serves from 500-800 meals daily; Telephone Voice Mailbox and receives mail for homeless and phone less residents of Wyandotte County and case management. Community Outreach Services offers a  wholistic approach, designed to go beyond charity to foster social change and build self-reliance. Services include: case management, transitional housing, life skills training, budget counseling, and emergency assistance.
Impact Statement

  • MCRC conducted a successful re-entry program in partnership with the Kansas Department of Corrections.  More than 50 mentors guided ex-offenders in their release and re-entry into the area.  This was a pilot program for the State of Kansas.  Therefore, due to its success  the state of Kansas now moved the program under their umbrella.
  • MCRC successfully guided a fifth family through the process from homelessness to home ownership.
  • MCRC successfully provided soft services via two locations to over 4,500 clients, plus information and referrals. Including, rent assistance, utility assistance, telephone bank, mail slots, two food pantries, transitional housing and more.

  • Working in collaboration with KCK and KCMO major healthcare providers, MCRC will design and carry out a Mega Health Fair that involves 50 to 75 medical vendors. Family friendly activities will be available to a diversified group of attendants. Expected participation is approximately 800 families or 1200 individuals.
  • To launch a Minute Clinic that will be located inside an existing facility located on the Mt. Carmel campus. Services provided will include various screenings and minor medical evaluations and care.
  • To design a Health and Nutrition Program that addresses the diverse needs of the community.

CEO Comments

 MCRC is ready to chart a course that expands its vision. It will take intentional and creative marketing strategies to attract families to a place that will help their children become school ready and life successfully. Statistics report that Kansas has the highest unemployment rate of 6% (KC Star 1/19/08). This means more families need more assistance. An additional case manager to meet these needs is required as well as revenue that is not tied to reimbursable or restricted grants. Homeless and near homeless families have needs that are immediate. With a history of great community outreach programs, this is an opportunity for donors to seed in the process of empowering families to find new ways to live better lives. Reports of foreclosures and empty new homes are escalating. Lending institutions have employed more conservative lending practices and less tolerance for less than stellar credit histories and ratings. Financial recovery training, coaching and lending incentives are needed to complete the master plan of 48 single family homes. The projection to build 8 homes in 2008 will happen with financial literacy, gainful employment and coaching for one year for every new home buyer. To assure these things happen a great Board of Directors, donors and supportive community is appreciated.

CEO Comments In the current economically challenging climate, all non profits are faced with difficult financial difficulties.  MCRC is in need unrestricted discretionary funds for operational expenses, employee benefits and other critical organizational need for gap funding.  Some of the grants that we secure and manage operates on a reimbursable basis and will only fund services to the the public and do not allow for any overhead expenses.  This is problematic for small organizations.

Organization Comments

 MCRC has experienced significant leadership transitions that have impacted fundraising efforts. Due to the decrease in philanthropic dollars for operations in the arena of community development, MCRC has been place in the position of re-evaluating service delivery and is creating new ways to generate revenue. MCRC's mix of direct social services and housing development, respectively, provide a diversified revenue stream for the agency.  Securing appropriate funding for general operating expenses, as well as cash flow are both ongoing challenges. The Board of Directors has initiated the process to cultivate and sustain individual, corporate and foundational donors to bridge funding gaps. This effort will provide the organization with the necessary positive cash flow to expand social services and undertake revenue-generating development projects.  MCRC truly believes in the power of partnerships, whether with governmental entities, other non-profits, and/or the business community. When collaborating on a project, the effectiveness of limited funds is greatly increased, while administrative costs are reduced.
