Mission Statement Making a sustainable, long term and life changing difference in the lives of those without regular access to medical care, through innovative provision of healthcare services.
Background Statement
World Outreach Foundation Kansas City was founded with the goal of continuing the passion of our founders to deliver medical assistance to those in need across the globe. Our vision was to provide this assistance in a way that was sustainable, and delivered benefits for the long term.

The experience of our board indicated that medical missions from the US to developing countries were successful, but risked helping only those who were able to attend the clinics, and the benefits to the local community were significant, but short lived.

Our vision was to fund and support mobile units on the ground in the Philippines, and initiate and support initiatives to further the long term healthcare goals of the populations we serve. This includes medical missions, when they are provided with the intent to provide long term benefits as well as treating acute cases.

All our programs are designed with sustainability as their foundation.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement

World Outreach Foundation Kansas City has grown significantly since its founding in 2004. Specifically, an increase in both the scope and nature of our operations in support of the needy across the globe. Our expansion has allowed us to serve an increasing number of patients each year, allowing us to ensure that the assistance we provide makes the long term difference to which we are committed. We have also broadened our services from providing immediate medical care to those in urgent need, to longer term educational and preventative healthcare initiatives such as nutritional and feeding programs, diabetic screening, women’s reproductive healthcare and provision of medical equipment.We developed two Mobile Units in the Philippines, each with a surgical suite and Specialty Diagnostic Clinic. These units enable our local partners to provide year round medical missions.

Since 2013 we have worked with the homeless community in Kansas City whose access to high quality healthcare is very limited, thereby extending our reach to those in need on an ongoing basis within our own community, which is a major current focus of the foundation. Dental services were launched in 2015 and we have expanded our operations during since mid 2016 to include a new and additional partnership with Artists Helping the Homeless to provide medical care, tele health and dental services.

Our growth has necessitated a strengthening of administrative and management processes and structures. The Foundation appointed a full time Executive Director during 2012 to oversee the development of the Foundation’s fundraising, financial and strategic initiatives. In addition, we have appointed board members since 2012 with specific financial and management expertise to ensure that the board oversight of our operations is strong.

We reviewed our administrative structure, board make up and processes and overall strategy during 2014 and 2015 to ensure they are as effective and efficient as possible in support of our mission, vision, and long term future.We will continue our successful partnerships with local and international organizations.

According to the most recent figures reported in “The State of Homelessness in Missouri : 2011 Report” published by St Louis University, at any given point in time there are 1750 homeless people in Kansas City (Winter 2010 figures). These figures include families, and there are many organizations that support them with shelter both short and long term. However the homeless are both likely to suffer from poorer health that the general population, and their situation makes access to available healthcare for both prevention and treatment much more difficult.

WOFKC is committed to working with organizations able to offer shelter, but not the medical care that the homeless need. The homeless clinic has been operating since September 2013 on a weekly basis, dedicated to providing access to healthcare and physicians, free to those seeking such access. Since 2015 we have also offered a weekly dental service including the provision of dentures and partials. All these services are free to the patients and to date have served over 4000 patients (dental and medical). In January 2017 we started medical, dental and telehealth services at our partners at Artists Helping the Homeless giving an additional location and access to more patients in need.

Short-Term Success Working in partnership with homeless shelter organizations, we will ensure that 100% of those in semi-permanent accommodation will be able to access primary healthcare (both medical and dental) for themselves and their families.
Long-Term Success To provide access to healthcare services both treatment for existing conditions and preventative visits to ensure the long term health of all the homeless in KC.
Program Success Monitored By Working in partnership with homeless shelter organizations, we will ensure that 100% of those in semi-permanent accommodation will be able to access primary healthcare for themselves and their families.
Examples of Program Success Many of the individuals we treat have no insurance or means to pay for medical treatment. In the case of dental for example, we see many patients who have very poor teeth as a result of their lifestyle and many who struggle to find employment cite such poor dental health as a reason for low self-esteem as well as pain. Providing dentures for these patients takes several visits but the results are plain to see and contribute greatly to helping their overall outlook and self-confidence, allowing them to interview and hold employment more readily. This is one of the most rewarding, but only part of the help our programs provide.
The rural populations in many developing countries have little or no access to modern healthcare facilities and practices. In many cases chronic conditions that would be immediately and successfully treated in the US, remain un-diagnosed and untreated for lack of funds, expertise and the facilities to treat these conditions.
WOFKC’s medical mission program provides medical and surgical teams from the US who visit these (often remote) areas and provide surgical and clinical support to those in need. In addition to the immediate help, these missions are the centerpiece for longer lasting programs such as diabetes awareness and treatment and dental education.
The goal of this program is to make a long lasting and sustainable difference to the health of the populations we serve, and therefore each mission provides situation appropriate capital equipment, medicines and consumables as well as education programs for the local physicians.
Category International, Foreign Affairs & National Security, General/Other International Health Care Assistance
Population Served International, ,
Short-Term Success Each mission has a target for the total number of patients that are treated including surgeries, preventative care, clinic visits, medicines provided etc. These targets vary for each mission depending on the nature of the local needs, as well as the physicians that take part in each mission.
Long-Term Success

Our Mission Program has the ultimate goal of providing sustainable medical care to the populations we serve, including access to specialist services once the mission has been completed.

Program Success Monitored By
There are essentially 3 measures of success:
  1. Number of patients treated (broken down into major and minor surgeries and clinic consultations plus other clinical measures depending on the individual mission)
  2. In kind donations – the value of the goods, equipment and medicines donated
  3. Value of professional services rendered – our physicians and medical staff donate their time to the mission and this has a value that we record and report
Examples of Program Success
In 2015 WOF served 2037 patients at our medical mission in Ormoc, Leyte in the Philippines which we also scoped as a potential long term venue for medical mission work. This patient total included 56 major and 72 minor surgeries. 
In 2014, WOFKC was able to treat 749 patients during our major mission for the year, to Bohol in the Philippines.  Previous years have seen missions to Illocos Norte, Philippines (3153 patients treated, including 153 surgeries and 249 dental extractions),Nepal (1244 patients treated including 72 surgeries), Mali and other locations in the Philippines.
CEO Comments
WOFKC is committed to providing healthcare to those most in need, who struggle to access such services due to lack or resources available locally, or through economic and social circumstances.
We are experienced at delivering such services overseas, but since 2012 we have been committed to providing access to the healthcare system for the homeless in Kansas City. This is a challenging population to serve, although there are many organizations working to provide access to medical care in Kansas City.
The key challenges we face include the transient nature of the population, the lack of a medical "home" for them and subsequently poor ongoing patient monitoring and care. In addition there is a general lack or medical insurance among the homeless, and their access to Medicaid is also limited.
There is a tremendous opportunity to provide even basic access to the medical system here in Kansas City. Currently, the homeless population significantly overuse the Emergency room system and this isn't an efficient use of existing medical resources.
In 2012, we partnered with a number of organizations dedicated to working with the homeless, including Day and Night shelters, to offer medical screening and wellness clinics operating on a weekly basis to provide the dedicated, regular healthcare that will contribute to breaking the cycle of homelessness in our city.

CEO Comments

Since hiring a full time Executive Director, the Foundation has implemented several new programs and developed others from the successes of the past. This has necessitated an increased focus on the administrative processes to cover the new operational programs, and that is an ongoing development that gained renewed focus in 2014.

In addition, the Foundation undertook a strategic review in the light of current and future opportunities for growth and service, and this process was formalized in 2014. This led to a strengthening of the board hiring and retention policies and gear the organization for accelerated development beyond 2016, finances permitting.
