Mission Statement Our mission at the Center of Grace is to provide services that meet priority needs in Olathe, to create missional ministries that strengthen families and neighborhoods, to house non-profit agencies that fit the Center's mission, and to cooperate with other community groups in Johnson County. At the Center of Grace the programs offered are designed to help low income families receive the help they need to make their families strong and ready to flourish into the community.
Background Statement The Center of Grace was established in 1999 after First U.M.C. merged with Hope U.M.C. to form Grace U.M.C. Grace U.M.C. built a new building and relocated from 520 Harrison to 11485 Ridgeview in north Olathe. The building at 520 S. Harrison had been listed for sale for over two years without any viable offers. Rather than board up the building the Board of Trustees decided to keep the building and turn it into a Mission and Outreach Center. In 2005, Grace U.M.C. established a governing board for Center of Grace to guide the Center’s ministries by providing a comprehensive identity and direction for the Center. The Center of Grace Board (henceforth “COGB”) oversees all programs and ministries at the Center. COGB includes persons who receive services of the Center; the CEO of the Center and the chair of COGB are different persons. COGB is accountable for governance to the Administrative Board of Grace U.M.C. Two members of the Administrative Board are on COGB. The Arms of Grace Board (henceforth “AOGB”) was also formed in 2001 as a separate non-profit corporation to raise, receive, and disperse gifts for programs or projects at Center of Grace, particularly, targeting donors who wanted to support some helping ministry at the Center of Grace, but who also did not want directly to support a religious organization. Directors of this legally autonomous board are all members of Grace U.M.C. COGB is related to AOGB in two ways: COGB identifies for AOGB specific areas in which additional funding are needed; and COGB is accountable to AOGB for its use of any funding received for and directed to COGB. Boards relate to each other as follows: COGB as the governing board; AOGB as the supporting board; and Grace U.M.C. Administrative Board as the advisory board (although it retains ultimate governing authority, the categories in this form did not permit indicating this clearly).

CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement

As a mission center near downtown Olathe, the Center of Grace responds to a diversity of needs. Our focal points are community education, helping to feed and clothe those in need of help, and assisting the immigrant community with cultural and language differences. 

The Center of Grace educational focus is seen through our partnerships. Johnson County Community College offers English Language classes. JCCC and the Olathe School District have a grant to offer the Migrant Family Literacy Program which includes free nursery, toddler and preschool educational opportunities.

The Center of Grace provides emergency assistance for rent and utilities. Need is assessed through community channels.  The Free Community Dinner on Wednesday and Thursday evenings continues and is well known in the area.  We also partner with the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Kansas City and offer year around programming for children in grades K-12. Our Clothing Closet is used by many for apparel and home goods.  The Shoe Fund provides new shoes for children referred by public schools, social workers, and community agencies. The Center of Grace provides health screening tests for the uninsured. The goal is to catch problems before it is an emergency. Finally, the JCCC dental van is on-site twice a month to provide free screenings, cleanings and x-rays to those without dental insurance. 

The Board of Directors vision for the Center of Grace is to “Serve the World” through our building. Our challenge is funding these programs. Many of the community programs - English Second Language, Migrant Family Literacy- in our building are serviced through grants. Wednesday Night Dinners, Emergency Assistance, Health Screening Clinic, Clothing Closet and Shoe Fund are funded through donations from civic/community groups and church donations.  While the economic gap grows, the commitment of volunteers is steadfast. We continue to search for financial resources from as many streams as possible. 

Programs
Description
Center of Grace currently provides infant care and preschool for children whose parents attend JCCC English language classes. Preschool children and toddlers are introduced to preschool curriculum on a daily basis. The infants are provided with quality infant care in a learning environment rich with sensory experiences. Providing this care allows immigrant families to attend English classes.

Short-Term Success
The infant childcare program is achieving its goal. The little ones are busy in the room, crawling, toddling to the different areas, playing with manipulatives. Childcare workers are caring for them and stimulating their learning. The program is seen as successful because the babies are hearing English and encouraged to learn. The parents are happy to be able to have a safe place. Center of Grace keeps the Grace UMC's policy of Safe and Sacred Places which requires at least two childcare workers with the children at all times and workers are required to be certified.
 
The toddlers and preschoolers are assessed in different areas of development at the beginning of the year. The teachers then tailor the curriculum to help each child grow and learn and be ready for kindergarten.  
Long-Term Success
Providing quality infant care allows the parents to improve their lives through education knowing their babies are safe and happy. Providing attentive childcare providers who show the little ones how to play and keep them active provides learning to prepare them for the next step into the preschool areas. Children are not babysat but encouraged to explore and learn, enriching their experience. Long term results will be brighter children and parents better able to interact with the community.
Providing quality early childhood education for non English speaking toddlers and preschoolers, gets them ready to enter kindergarten and be successful in school.
Program Success Monitored By The program is overseen by the Grace UMC Children's Ministries Director to keep the program staffed and scheduled. They oversee the equipment and supplies. A watchful eye on the babies, the space used, and toys provided, is maintained. The number of children cared for each month is checked and any large drop off is investigated. The fact that the program continues to have children each day and the English classes are increasing in size at a greater rate than other programs in the metropolitan area reinforces our success with the childcare and preschool program.
Examples of Program Success We offer care for 6 babies, 12 toddlers and 16 preschoolers 12 hours each week. We usually have a waitlist. The goal is that these children will make an easier transition into Kindergarten because they have been exposed to the English language, social skills and basic concepts and knowledge expected for a 5 year old starting school.  
Description New or recent immigrants need a variety of ministries to help them adjust to and flourish.  Sylvia Romero coordinates ministries focused on low-income immigrant families: emergency assistance, twice a week community dinners, clothing closet, bus transportation to ESL classes at the Center of Grace, support groups, diversity programs in Olathe schools, referrals, youth physical fellowship in the Center of Grace gym, and networking with other Johnson County agencies.

Short-Term Success It is a difficult road to achieve the trust of the Hispanic community. We have been building this road for the past eight years and are seeing results of the groundwork. The Hispanic community knows they can call the Center of Grace for help or intervention if they are in a situation needing interpretation or one where they are not fully understanding what they are being told. Pastor Romero has worked closely to assist the community with problems peculiar to their situation. The growth of attendance at the seminars, classes, and special interest groups assures us that the community knows where we are located and that we are providing valuable information.
Long-Term Success The success of this program would be families going through the programs would become active, contributing members of the community. Helping people with temporary assistance solves an immediate crisis. Providing programs to show them how to avoid situations where they will need assistance through education and understanding of how things differ from where they came from, provides them the tools needed to succeed in their new life.
Program Success Monitored By The number of people participating in the various activities is how we know what we are doing is reaching out into the community. The Hispanic Task Force keeps its finger on the needs of the community. This group consists of representatives from Hispanic community group, schools, law enforcement, medical facilities, and many other groups providing a wide angle of the programs availabe metro-wide. This group meets monthly at the Center of Grace and allows us to keep our finger on the pulse of our target group.
Examples of Program Success The information sessions on topics of interest to our Hispanic neighbors have steadily increased in attendance. English Second Language classes continue to be at capacity. Community education  and fellowship events have had increased participation by the Hispanics as they reach out to share their background with the Johnson County area.  Center of Grace is reaching out into the community to encourage diversity and acceptance of a more globally diverse neighborhood.
Description The Shoe Fund provides new shoes for Olathe school age children.  The need of the child must be verified through a school counselor, nurse or social service agency. It is often necessary to provide a new pair of gym shoes for a child or youth so they may participate and pass a gym classes.

Short-Term Success

Each Olathe needy school age child who has been referred to us will be able to have a new pair of shoes of their choice that will fit properly.

Long-Term Success Information about the Shoe Fund is available in the social service agencies, schools, doctor's offices, and churches.  Someone without proper shoes for school or everyday wear can be referred to the Center of Grace Shoe Fund where they pick up a shoe card to go shopping at Payless Shoes. In 2016, we helped 816 children get a new pair of shoes.  The long term success of the program can be defined by the variety of groups who help to provide funding for the program. The Shoe Fund received support this year from the Mayor's Christmas Tree Fund, five area churches, Junior Service League, P.E.O. chapters, and several other civic organizations.  This program fills a need in the community.
Program Success Monitored By The financial records of the Shoe Fund are carefully maintained and monitored by the financial secretary and Director of Center of Grace. We also have a database to track the families and children who have been helped.
Examples of Program Success The Shoe Fund helped 816 Olathe school age children get a new pair of shoes in 2016.  
Description
The gym building at Center of Grace offers a wide variety of recreational activities. Children and youth groups use the gym for practices.  There is a children's league offered in the winter months to teach soccer to primary school age children.  The gym is used almost every night by community sports groups for practice sessions. 
Program Budget $18,000.00

Population Served , , Children Only (5 - 14 years)
Short-Term Success The short-term advantages of the sports and exercise programs are to provide recreation, to teach children and youth the fun of organized sports, to provide adults with the opportunity to play a sport and relieve stress from daily work activities. All of these activities build a better community and enrich the lives of those involved.
Long-Term Success The groups using the gym have the opportunity to exercise in a climate controlled space. The basketball court is standard size making it in high demand during the season. The Boys and Girls Club offer a soccer program called Triple Play for children and youth. The goal is to allow as many groups as possible to have an opportunity to exercise. Increased exercise can only benefit the community by providing health benefits.
Program Success Monitored By All groups using the gym are scheduled and we continually exchange communication with the leaders, to provide for continued growth and development of future programs.
Examples of Program Success
The teams wishing to use the space begin calling earlier every year.  We have a few groups who go year-round.  
The Boys and Girls Club children and youth use the gym everyday for their programming. 
Description
The Wednesday and Thursday Night Community Dinner provides a free meal to anyone who is hungry or would like the fellowship of a meal with others.  The leadership team plans the meal, does the shopping and lines up the volunteers to prepare and serve the meal.  Those dining with us vary in their circumstance from people attending meetings at the Center to the homeless looking for a meal and a temperature controlled environment for a few hours.  We mainly serve the working poor and families struggling to have enough food to feed their family, and the elderly who gather for a nutritious dinner and conversation.

Population Served , , Homeless
Short-Term Success
The short-term success of the Community Dinner is determined by the number of people who attend and return weekly for the meals.  Efforts are made to provide a welcoming and comfortable environment for everyone attending and tasty well-balanced meals.  Our short-term success is to feed each person who arrives and send them on their way with a full stomach.

Additional food items are provided from varied sources for dinners to take home; i.e., bread, fresh vegetables from the Farmers Market (in season), other items from a variety of sources.  The speed with which the items are removed also allows us to judge the success of the program. 
 
Our short-term success is how many are fed and our ability to continue to provide the meals and the volunteers to run the program. 
Long-Term Success The success of this program can be viewed by the number of people being served.  As the economy has turned downward the number of people calling and joining us for dinner has increased.  They will often eat more than one serving, an indication that they are definitely hungry when they arrive.  Our long-term success would ultimately be for the program to not be needed except for fellowship of those attending.  When everyone has enough to feed their families and our program is not needed, we will have succeeded in providing for the hungry in their hour of need.  Until that time we will track the success of the program by the number of meals being served which is tracked by the plates served. 
Program Success Monitored By Program success is measured by meals served which is tracked by the team that coordinates the Food Ministry..
Examples of Program Success The word has spread about the Wednesday and Thursday evening dinners and we are increasingly receiving calls about the meals as the information is shared with people in the surrounding areas.  After serving in the kitchen, one example of success is the excitement on the face of the children when they eat with us.  Adults will comment on how the food is delicious and they often thank us for the plates. 
CEO Comments
The programming at Center of Grace continues to grow and change with the assessed needs of the community. We began the health screenings on Wednesday evenings to provide preventative care before the difficult health situation occurs. We also have a wonderful partnership with Jo. Co. Community College providing dental hygiene students and their mobile dental van every other week at the Center of Grace. 
 
Our community clothing closet, Wednesday and Thursday evening community meals, and medical equipment closet are all volunteer run. Immigrant ministry and outreach are  important aspects of  Center of Grace. Under the leadership of a multilingual staff  there continue to be increasing resources for immigrant individuals in our community. In looking at future programming, we hope to assess the needs of the community, partner with other organizations so  services are not duplicated, offer optimum access to resources, and work creatively to address the realities of serving the last, the least, and the lost. We are finding that the synergy of working with agencies and individuals beyond our doors makes possible more than we ever imagined.

Organization Comments Because funding is always a concern and programing for the Center of Grace is outside of budgetary requests, any additional funding provided through grants is invaluable. Current programs are projected to be ongoing, but we dream of additional programs to greater benefit the people we serve. Our dreams can be made possible only through foundation and grant requests. This type of funding is a major part of the success the current programs. Huge strives have been made in improving the physical plant housing the Center of Grace. In the past six years, roofs have been replaced; new guttering on the main building has been replaced; the whole entry has been redecorated; new furnace and air conditioning have been added to the gym building; restrooms and showers in the gym have new fixtures and plumbing plus new flooring and paint; kitchen in the gym building has refinished cabinets, new carpet, new dishwasher and new countertops; five exterior doors have been replaced, the parking lot has had major hole repairs and has been sealed. The exterior cooling equipment for the main building has been replaced.  There continues to be maintain needs on the 50-year-old building and funding these repairs is on ongoing struggle.
