KS - Wyandotte County
The NBC CDC serves the area of Wyandotte County, specifically zip codes of 66101, 66102, 66103 & 66104.  Our reach also includes the remainder of the City of Kansas City, Ks and the greater Kansas City metropolitan area.
CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement
NBC Community Development Corporation has been a beacon of light in the Wyandotte area. The greatest achievements have been in the area of research, education, interventions and care in the area of health. These are collaborations include researchers at Univ. of Kansas Medical Center, UMKC School of Medicine, St. Luke’s Mid America Heart Institute, and Children’s Mercy Hospital. Local collaborations with Latino for Health, Healthy Communities Wyandotte, MOCSA, KU Workgroup for Community Innovation, YMCA, Communities Creating Opportunities, KU School of Architecture, KU Dotte Agency, Kansas Leadership Center and Community Health Council of Wyandotte. Our first experience with Community Based Participatory Research resulted in a medical emergency department education card that allows someone to make an informed decision of treatment for strokes that increase the chance of full recovery by 67%. This education card has now been piloted in over 5 emergency room departments.
Our challenges now are to create sustainable funding streams for not only programs but also the operations that support them to continue good work. 95% of the time and effort is volunteered which has been sustained due to the conviction of those who work with the organization. Recently we participated in the launch of the Violence Prevention Program of Wyandotte County, hosted the report of the Wyandotte County Community Health Status Assessment and continued to support the recruitment and enrollment of residents in health insurance. We have also continued our effort to support and encourage physical activity by leading walking clubs at Parkwood and Jersey Creek Parks.
Description Community Health Worker Wyandotte is an extension of the organization's commitment to providing advocacy for the underserved, uninsured or underinsured, low income, and minority populations in the elimination of health disparities. This program is scaling by collaboration with the Metropolitan Community College funded by a HRSA grant to educate 400 persons to be Community Health Workers in the next two years.
Category Education, General/Other Adult Education
Population Served Minorities, ,
Short-Term Success Increase in patient participation in the health care system at insured and uninsured levels. Reduction of emergency department use for non-emergent illness. Increase in use of primary care physicians. Increases in health insurance.
Long-Term Success
To disperse Community Health Workers throughout the community to create a trusting relationships between direct/indirect healthcare systems and residents of the KC metro. A system that is navigable and engenders the patients willing participation from among those outside of the system. Moving from post illness to preventative behaviors.
Program Success Monitored By Monitoring changes in insurance enrollment. Use of safety net clinics. Repeat emergency department usage. Greater health care participation by minorities, underserved, and uninsured persons.
Examples of Program Success 4 out 5 persons engaged over a month period time with a Community Health Worker believe they receive better treatment. Physicians and clinicians once apprehensive about Community Health Workers over 2-3 interactions now treat them as part of the health team. Community Health Workers many times foster persons becoming a team member in there own health.
S.N.A.P.B.A.C.K. has provided support and assistance to youth in the area with specific focus at Northwest Middle School. The organization's efforts have received acknowledgements from youth, parents, faculty, and school district officials. To further partner with the educational system in Wyandotte County our organization has observed the need for after school programs with targeted areas for youth maturation and development. We are proposing to make this time focused on “soft skills” to compliment the academic training. 
Snapback’s mission is to promote behavioral emotional and social growth in youth by providing knowledge through the introduction of the latest psychological, research studies and finding.
Learning social & emotional skills is a missing piece of education. The evidence continues to mount that developing social and emotional intelligence transforms the lives of young youth.
Category Education, General/Other Afterschool Enrichment
Population Served Adolescents Only (13-19 years), ,
Short-Term Success
Youth will demonstrate personal decision-making skills. They will know how to identify alternative actions and their consequences. They will develop empathy: the ability to understand other people’s nonverbal and verbal emotional messages. These youth will be able to identify relationship components creating quality relationships and not participating in unwholesome interactions.
Long-Term Success
Help disadvantaged youth and prepare them to deal with social challenges that allow them to break the cycle of poverty, unhealthy behaviors, and increase the use of life skills to increase life span and quality of life for their future.
Program Success Monitored By The programs success is monitored by level of participation of the students. Beginning and ending grades. Teacher feedback. Mechanisms for following students into higher-grade levels will help determine long-term results.
Examples of Program Success
Many times these students do not have exposure to new experiences, often provided to those in other neighborhoods, experiences that are important to their learning and understanding alternative options for their lives.
In this case, the school district informed us that there was no more money available to fund our robotics program for the students. However, because of gifts provided from CFC, we were still able to offer the robotics program through the after school program to the students.
Robotics is now a part of the science program at the school. The best part is that we even had one of our students in the after school program place in the top 5 at the state robotics competition.

CEO Comments Wyandotte County currently has several challenges in areas of health, economics, civic pride, and social fatigue. It has a population of 27% African Americans and 25% Latinos. This requires a addressing cultural competencies by serving institutions to include these minority populations in the social system of Wyandotte County. In reference to health insurance Wyandotte County has only 6 percent of the area’s insured population, it has more than double that percentage of Medicaid and the uninsured — 14 percent and 15 percent respectively.In Wyandotte Country life expectancies for blacks were three to six years lower than for whites. Teen pregnancy rate for 2009 varies from a low of 19.8 teen births per 1,000 female teens (ages 15–19) to a high of 84.6 teen births in Wyandotte County. Overall Wyandotte County ranks last of all counties in Kansas for health outcomes. The greatest challenge to the organization is to continue building collaborations with government, churches, businesses, community organizations, hospitals, clinics, and foundations to foster a healthy cultural, through education, language use,  high awareness, and creation of targeted marketing to each generation and age level. Increasing physical activity and creating civic pride through making Wyandotte a healthy place to live and participate in life.
