Mission Statement

Our mission is investing in struggling, single parent families through childcare and mentoring in order to bring fulfillment and purpose to the whole family.

Background Statement
The co-founders and directors of Whole Family Care met while serving at a resource center for low income mothers in 2009. It was there that they saw first hand the need for affordable, quality child care for single moms working toward a livable wage to support their families. Another significant factor that impacted the advancement of the families mentally, emotionally, spiritually, financially and physically was the lack of a healthy support system. The two women began dreaming about a program that could provide full time childcare for single mothers and also surround them with accountability, financial counseling, job resources, parenting support, education options, support groups, mental health assistance and a lot of grace and love.
 
In 2016 our co-founders, Jenna and Erin, formed a board of directors and Whole Family Care was formed. Later that same year the organization became incorporated in the state of Missouri. In July of 2017 WFC was granted 501c3 non-profit status and began initial stages of fundraising. Doors opened in April 2108 serving only one family. Word got out and the program quickly reached full capacity for the pilot program. To date, WFC has been able to serve 6 families and children. These families have been given support and love through trials of single parenthood. The parents have been able to gain or maintain steady employment while also planning for the future because they have a safe and affordable or free place for their kids to stay while they work. During the pilot, through our family support program, families have gone from homelessness to stable housing, gotten help and accountability with addiction, learned budgeting skills, found support for parenting struggles, and been given referrals to professional counseling, medical doctors and child development professionals. This is done through weekly mentoring sessions and a monthly support group.
Impact Statement
In our first year our Program has provided:

-Over 350 hours of direct support for struggling single mothers through mentoring, support groups, resources, and encouragement in person and through text, phone and email during our first 11 months of operating.
-Over 2,500 hours of high quality childcare averaging a total cost of $30,000 in free childcare services.
-Over 1200 healthy meals and over 1200 snacks for children.
 
We managed to remain fiscally frugal and end our operating year with the same amount in the bank that we started with. Since then we have had to hire more staff in order to expand our reach to become a licensed childcare facility and serve more families. This has presented us with an urgent need for more funds. Our fundraising efforts our first year were exactly what we needed for that phase. Our goals and focus this year are centered around partnering with more community organizations for referrals, resources and financial stability. We are working to raise awareness in Kansas City about the need for childcare services and family support among single parents.
Needs Statement

Our most pressing current need is to meet our operating budget. In our first year we were able to remain stable with our budget but only able to serve four families. We are working to expand our services and our budget has increased significantly. We are currently only meeting about half of our budget needs for our first phase of expansion. We need around 3000.00 more per month to operate within our projected current budget and 7000 more a month to meet our full capacity expansion budget which will allow us to serve 20 families at a time. Whole Family Care is also in need of volunteers to assist with classroom duties a few hours a week or month. Board members and committee members are also a current need as we look to expand our reach beyond our immediate networks. Specifically we are looking for a board president to relieve our interim president, vice president and secretary.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement

I am so thankful I have been given the opportunity, along with Jenna McIntire, to co-found and direct Whole Family Care. Our first year has been full of ups and downs, challenges, questions, doubts, support, guidance, fulfillment and joy. We have seen families who are walking through really hard things find hope and support. We have worked with so many selfless individuals giving their time and resources to see our families supported and loved. Our journey has been much like any of our journeys at any given time. What we believed at the beginning of this adventure is even more true to us today, that we all need a community that believes in us and invests in us if we are going to thrive in this life. We are building a community around Whole Family Care, a community that believes in the mission and the people here. Whole Family Care is building a community around struggling families. We are a community that believes in the healing power of hope and relationships and when time and treasure is invested in a family, generations are impacted.

Programs
Description

Each family is provided a mentor to help navigate the day-to-day challenges of life and parenting. Spiritual and emotional support is offered through daily encouragement by caring, non-judgmental, loving individuals at the center, open and frequent commnunication, referrals to professional counseling as needs are identified, and weekly meetings with a mentor for further case management, parenting support and resources. Providing physical help relieves some of the pressures that come with being a single parent. Families are given numerous resources, nutrition classes, and child safety information. Families are encouraged to take advantage of  partnerships WFC has with community organizations and professionals that assist with medical care, mental health, child development, food, provisions, housing, and car repair. Budget counseling is required in order for families to become financially literate and reduce debt. Families are provided child care to help alleviate financial hardship.

Family Testimony: “Whole Family Care has been a huge blessing for my family for many reasons. It has given me a support system that otherwise I would not have. I have come to trust my mentor and talk to her about things I normally do not disclose or show emotion about. Her ideas, discussions, and videos about parenting, life lessons and balance, and faith have helped a lot. I enjoy and look forward to being able to text her to tell her news when it's good or bad and know I have support through either. My mentor helped me link with Hillcrest Hope which has changed our lives completely. Gave us a place to live, structure, and an even bigger ongoing support system."

Description

The Whole Family Care childcare program is designed to create a safe and loving Christian environment to learn and grow. Quality early care and education at WFC is a partnership between parents and provider. Teachers and directors partner with parents to provide children with age and developmentally appropriate activities and materials that they are free to explore. Opportunities are provided, to experience, social, emotional, physical, intellectual, and spiritual development in every classroom. Childcare teachers are experienced and trained according to state requirements to help ensure that children in the program will meet their full potential. The curriculum is based on Christian principles and beliefs, but enrollment is open to all, regardless of their religion or beliefs. At no point will any of the participants be required to convert to Christianity or be required to renounce their own religion or beliefs.

Short-Term Success

Many of the families that we serve come to our program in a crisis. The children we serve are often directly impacted. We anticipate that after 8 weeks of full-time attendance, students will feel comfortable and safe at our center. They will experience stable teachers and classrooms and they experience a stable schedule. Our students will not have to wonder when their next meal is, or if they are safe here.


Long-Term Success

The foundation for childhood, behavior, cognitive function, and physical health, to name a few, is laid during the first five years of life. Yet, many children face stressors in their early life which can equate to a gap in care, nutrition, and safety.  One study posits that “children who live in poverty and attend a quality preschool program experience long-lasting primary and secondary positive effects". Postive benefits of early care include: reduced need for placement in special education classes in later childhood; higher school achievement and commitment in early adolescence; lower rates of high school incompletions, juvenile arrests, and welfare assistance as an adult; and higher instances of wealth in later adolescence and early adulthood.” We anticipate 85% of children who attend our Childcare Center will be kindergarten ready or on track to be kindergarten ready. According to the U.S. Department of Education only 40% of students nationwide entering Kindergarten are prepared.
