Background Statement

Catholic Charities of Kansas City-St. Joseph began in 1879 as a small orphanage in downtown Kansas City, and continues today with holistic health and human services to individuals of all ages and families among all walks of life. Direct services to more than 71,000 individuals are delivered annually across 27 counties of northwest/west-central Missouri. Services include workforce development (e.g., vocational counseling, training/education); support and education (e.g., strengths-based case management, child development assessment, counseling, financial literacy); supportive housing (e.g., transitional, permanent); health services (e.g., senior centers and nutrition sites, in-home assistance, homemaking); and emergency assistance (e.g., food, hygiene, clothes, rent/utilities assistance).

The agency’s main office is located in Kansas City, Missouri with a regional office in St. Joseph, Missouri. A board of directors governs the agency and reflects the diversity of the communities served. Catholic Charities adheres to a service business model as an effective means of operational management. The agency is committed to serving the vulnerable with excellence, as demonstrated by accreditation every four years by the Council on Accreditation (COA) and a strong track record of collaboration with local, state, and national organizations such as the United Way, the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, and the federal Department of Veterans Affairs.

Catholic Charities Foundation serves as the fundraising arm of the agency. The foundation and its board of directors support the diversified financial goals and requirements of the agency through fundraising appeals, planned giving, donor relations, grant procurement, volunteer services, and marketing.

Impact Statement

Catholic Charities has achieved significant accomplishments in the past year: 

  • Welcome Center has been an amazing success serving over 6,500 individuals and families in the last year. The Welcome Center acts as a single point of entry where individuals/families are greeted and their need(s) are assessed.  We can assist them by meeting their immediate needs (e.g., food, hygiene, rent/utility assistance). Staff also work to help the family/individual identify  the underlying needs/barriers (e.g., economic insecurity, homelessness) that brought them into the Welcome Center and then assists in helping them enroll in other agency services (e.g., Supportive Housing, Workforce Development, Support and Education, Health Services) or refer them to community resources in an effort to assist them in overcoming the crisis/barriers and becoming stable, self-sustaining citizens.
  • Children and families has added St. Germaine's Little Lambs. This program is designed to work with families and children primarily under the age of 5.  Through this program parents can learn parenting skills and conduct ongoing child development  assessments with the focus on helping to reduce child abuse. The program also uses the Ages and Stages questionnaires to help the caregiver assist the child in developing the necessary skills to obtain the normal development level of their peers. 
  • The Work Force Development program continues to thrive assisting 247 individuals in finding a job last year. A total of 818 individuals were helped through workforce case management and training. We continue to expand our services offering classes 2 times a week on topics such as employment preparation and retention services; benefits access; financial literacy and job club.
In 2017-2018, Catholic Charities continues to seek innovative strategies to assist households holistically that help them lift themselves out of poverty and live stable and self-sufficient lives.
Needs Statement

Catholic Charities identifies the following needs as critical for agency participants to overcome diverse challenges:

  1. Emergency Assistance—Funding, gift cards, or donations to help stabilize participants while they utilize services to overcome barriers to needs and become secure and self-sufficient. Participants need basic essentials such as food, medications, shelter, rent/utility assistance, hygiene, etc.
  2. Volunteers—To help participants access immediate needs (e.g., food, rent/utility, hygiene, emergency assistance); to provide in-office operational support (e.g., filing, database management, customer service); to mentor veterans, former offenders, parents, etc.; and to assist with fundraising events and donor relations.
  3. Services—Investments to provide impactful, integrated services to any participant faced with the complexities of crisis. Services from the Welcome Center to Workforce Development work holistically together to stabilize and empower participants to live self-sufficient, sustainable lives of their choosing. Investments fund case management, education/training, workforce development/preparation, parenting/life skills, mental health counseling, in-home care, and many other services unified to assist service participants completely.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement

Catholic Charities of Kansas City-St. Joseph seeks to empower the community’s vulnerable to lead lives of dignity and self-determination. Catholic Charities delivers a variety of services tailored to address each individual and family’s specific needs. The intent is to help participants overcome barriers to stability and self-sufficiency, and to help participants lift themselves out of poverty for long-lasting sustainability. But most households seeking assistance from Catholic Charities are systemically entrenched in a cycle of poverty.

Agency services are designed to touch all participants’ needs, to empower them to overcome barriers to their needs, and to help them break from the cycle of poverty. In 2016, Catholic Charities successfully served more than 10,000 individuals. Staff provides interwoven, collaborative support and services tailored to each household’s unique needs regardless of their point of entry for services. This successful integration and delivery of services is strengthened by the location Catholic Charities’ Kansas City offices at 850 Main Street in downtown Kansas City. Integral to Catholic Charities’ successful support for individuals and families is the Welcome Center, a central intake center for all households. The Welcome Center ensures that all individuals are greeted and that their immediate needs are addressed so that they are positioned and empowered to plan future actions rather than reacting to present crises.

Once immediate needs are addressed, households are linked to comprehensive services such as housing, case management, and/or job preparation. The agency has developed programming based on a successful model for workforce development. This employment preparation and job search service is modeled after TurnAround, the agency’s program for former offenders reentering their communities. TurnAround’s knowledge and success helping former offenders become gainfully employed has been applied to the broader population seeking support from Catholic Charities. Many households in crisis face overlapping barriers, but common among most is financial insecurity. Causes for financial insecurity ranges from under/unemployment to lack of education/skills. Workforce Development staff help participants prepare for workforce success through further education, training, certifications, skills building, and resume development. Staff support participants as they search for jobs and are a resource on their self-determined journey to self-sufficiency and sustainability.

Catholic Charities is accredited by the Council on Accreditation, a nationally recognized organization, which identifies agencies that have self-identified high standards of performance in the services delivered to clients. Catholic Charities has a long history of attaining the highest benchmarks of quality, services, and best practices among nonprofit organizations in the country. 

The board of directors continues to provide leadership and support utilizing a significantly effective governance process that empowers staff to take more responsibility for agency operations. They are pleased with the success of “client-centric” services provided to meet a variety of individual needs.


Support and Education helps households in crisis remove barriers that prevent them from achieving stability and well being.  Services include strengths-based case management, parenting education, child development assessments, counseling, financial literacy, disability and deaf ministries, adoption and other supportive services that help individuals and families overcome crisis and break from the cycle of poverty.  Staff work with households to identify needs and strengths to overcome barriers, help them set goals and support goals achievement.

Short-Term Success

Each Support and Education program has its own short-term goals(s), which may include increasing knowledge, setting a goal, or removing barriers.

Long-Term Success

 According to the 2016 report, State of the State Poverty in Missouri, 43% of children born to poorest families remain poor into adulthood.  Ultimately, the agency would like to see the clients enrolled in our case management programs be able to transition to a life out of poverty, where families earn livable wages, have stable housing and reliable transportation, develop support systems, etc. For clients who are enrolled in programs, such as financial literacy, mental health or disability and deaf ministries, the long-term goal is for them to successfully function despite their individual challenges. 

Program Success Monitored By

All data is collected and entered into the agency's database system, Efforts to Outcomes by Social Solutions.  The term "data" includes documentation of all aspects of interaction between the agency and the client.  This includes, recording every contact with the family in the form of a progress note, documenting pre and post test scores, setting goals and providing quarterly goal updates, documenting child development assessment scores, recording staff observations and client's interaction level with the case worker/agency, tracking barrier reduction and meeting immediate needs as well as providing internal and external referrals and resources.  With such a plethora of data being tracked in the integrated data system, reports are able to be pulled in real time. 

Examples of Program Success

As Catholic Charities expanded the Children and Families Services, it allowed for continued exploration of community partnerships and collaboration.  As a result, Children and Families Services were able to develop a partnership with Holy Cross School and serve a large group of vulnerable families and their children.  In total, the program completed 14 Ages and Stages Questionnaires (ASQ), a researched based child monitoring system utilized to demonstrate appropriate growth utilizing the approved development and social-emotional screening tools.  The assessments allowed for the parents to work with Catholic Charities'  family development  specialist in an effort to guide families toward developmental benchmarks. Our service to Holy Cross also worked as  a gateway for the parents to receive other agency programs and services such as emergency assistance, workforce development services and financial coaching.


Supportive Housing adheres to the housing first principal: households in crisis cannot stabilize until they obtain secure, permanent housing. Staff help homeless individuals, families, and anyone at-risk for homelessness attain transitional and permanent housing to stabilize their lives in the first step to sustaining and improving quality of life. Once housing is obtained, staff help households retain housing for the long-term through supportive services such as education (e.g., financial literacy, life skills classes); and help them obtain employment to support self-sustaining lives. Many participants have a variety of barriers that prevent sustainable employment, but have the opportunity to enroll in agency workforce development classes to build and improve their job skills. In addition, staff help participants access other agency resources to help them maintain their self-sustainable, healthy homes. Participants include veterans, families, and anyone else at-risk for homelessness.

  • 90 percent of service participants achieve at least one self-determined goal.
  • 80 percent of service participants remain in their housing unit throughout the operating year.

Long-Term Success

More than 80 percent of supportive housing participants maintained their housing situation for at least two years.

Program Success Monitored By

Staff document baseline data and statistical progress in individual client files and in the centralized data management system, Efforts to Outcomes (ETO). Anecdotal stories, participant self-reports, and staff observations of change are tracked in case notes. Quantifiable data are recorded in the client files and HMIS system. For all supportive housing services, a federal HUD database system is utilized to report client demographics, services, and outcomes.

Examples of Program Success

Allison and her four children—some with special needs—lived in a van. The family enrolled in Supportive Housing and found a home where the children felt safe to settle. Allison’s case manager then discovered that Allison carried trauma from year of abuse. After months of encouragement, Allison saw a counselor who diagnosed her with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Allison also engaged counselors for her children as needed. Through her counseling, Allison became more confident in her abilities. She keeps a positive outlook and strong faith. As Allison’s time in Supportive Housing ended, an opening came available for Permanent Housing. Allison qualified and her family was able to stay in their home without disruption. Through her church, she found a new home where she can pay her own rent, and she recently exited the program. Her family is happy, stable and thriving.


Workforce Development offers vocational counseling services designed to help "challenging-to-employ" individuals prepare for sustainable employment, obtain and retain employment, and increase household stability through economic security. Most participants lack higher education (e.g., GED, post-secondary); may not possess soft skills (e.g., hygiene, promptness, customer service etiquette); and are in crisis (e.g., homelessness, unemployment, financial). In addition, many participants face barriers that affect stability such as insufficient childcare, no access to transportation, and a range of others associated with poverty.

Staff work with households in crisis to prepare for sustainable employment through access to higher education including certifications and training, soft skills workshops, resume development, job search assistance,interview practice, and employment retention activities. The goals of these activities are to help participants obtain and retain employment, and develop career pathways which lead to long-term financial growth, household stability and economic security.

Examples of Program Success

Fred spent most of his adult life in and out of prison. After his last release, he promised himself he would never go back to jail. Angry, homeless, and near rock bottom, Fred came to Catholic Charities.

“At the time, I was so low and I didn’t really even know what I needed,” Fred said. “But now I realize what I needed was a foundation.”

At Catholic Charities, he started building that foundation one step at a time. First, he received help with food and clothing. Then, he began working with a case manager who gave him the support he needed to make good choices. Instead of going back to hustling on the streets, he earned his Warehouse Certification and began looking for a job.

Today, Fred has a  full-time job driving a forklift for a local manufacturer. He's saving money for a new apartment and a car.  And most importantly, he's building on a solid foundation.

The clients who come into Catholic Charities often face homelessness, unemployment, or are unable to sustain their immediate needs such as pay rent/utilities, transportation, food, clothes, and hygiene items.  We have a wide variety of clients, including but not limited to: older adults, under-employed, veterans, former offenders, single parents, individuals with mental illness or disease and children of undocumented parents.
As a single point of entry for all agency services and programs, clients who come to the Welcome Center are greeted, listened to, and go through a holistic intake and assessment process to determine which services best meet their needs. The Welcome Center will meet their emergency needs while enrolling them in one or more of our other programs(i.e. workforce development, children and families, temporary housing) or referring them to another agency in effort to break through the underlying barriers that are keeping them in poverty.
The emergency assistance provided by the Welcome Center includes but is not limited to: food, clothing, rent/utility assistance, transportation, SNAP enrollment, limited financial assistance with vision, dental and medical prescriptions.
With the Welcome our hope is to meet the immediate need(s) of the individual or family while determining those barriers that are keeping them in poverty and helping them to break through those barriers to become and stable and then hopefully thriving member(s) of the community. 
Category Human Services, General/Other Emergency Assistance
Population Served At-Risk Populations, ,
Short-Term Success The Welcome Center was designed to be the entry point into our agency.  There the individual/family is welcomed and encouraged to engage in a conversation about their immediate and long-term needs.  The Welcome Center is able to meet their immediate needs by providing emergency assistance in the form of transportation, food, diapers, clothing, assistance with obtaining legal documents or licenses, hygiene products and many other necessary items or forms of assistance.
Long-Term Success The ultimate goal of Welcome Center is to help individuals and families meet their immediate needs while identifying the crisis or barriers that are preventing the individual or family from thriving.  Once the crisis/barrier is identified the Welcome Center can then direct the individual or family to those agency or community programs that will assist the individual or family in breaking down the barriers and reaching stability.
Program Success Monitored By Welcome Center uses client surveys to measure our success. In addition, the agency uses a data base system, Efforts to Outcomes by Social Solutions.  The term "data" includes documentation of all aspects of interaction between the agency and the client.  This includes: recording every contact with the individual/family in the form or a progress note; meeting immediate needs; and providing internal and external referrals and resources. 
Examples of Program Success Kenneth lost his job and couldn't pay his rent.  He resorted to living in a  tent under the bridge. "I kept in neat and clean.  I just needed a space to sleep at night," he said  When a public works crew cleared out his camp, he lost everything, including a small stash of food and the benefit card he needed to buy more food.  He arrived a the Welcome Center hungry and discouraged. In the Welcome Center, Kenneth received food to help him get by while he applied for a new card.  In addition, he signed up for the agency's workforce development program.  He returned for the workshop a few days later with a new energy and attitude, ready to find a job.
