Background Statement

Since the 1960s, years of urban decay, increasing violence, and unmitigated poverty have taken a toll on the east side of Kansas City, as you can see in its physical neighborhoods and you can read in the headlines about its residents.

But a toll is temporary. And east siders are resilient, persistent, and insistent, ever-reliant on their faith, community, and family.

In the physical midst of that faith-filled perseverance, an agency began in September 1998, growing out of regular meetings of a caring group of adult volunteers and future-focused teenagers, wanting to contribute to their community, their families, and their God. The hope they found in those meetings became the name they gave to their new nonprofit community development agency.

Since 1999,The Hope Center has planted roots on the east side so that east siders are rooted in hope. Because when hope roots, people rise.

What began as a grassroots effort is now two decades and 1,500 families strong, thanks in large part to private philanthropic support. Taking holistic care of the body, mind, and spirit, The Hope Center launched both The Hope Clinic, the only primary care facility in three zip codes, in 2010, and Hope Leadership Academy, a K-4 charter school,  the neighborhood’s only elementary school, in 2011. Today, both entities are independent nonprofit organizations continuing to serve the east side.

Together with partners and donors like you, we keep an eye on the physical and human assets in the community; a heart on one another; and a head on rising up, intellectually and spiritually through outreach and programs focused on youth, adults, families, and community.

The Hope Center mission remains, “to develop healthy communities in Kansas City where the vulnerable can have hope and flourish.” Growth plans ahead include a new playground area to serve the campus and the community; extension of the Community Garden located at Benton & Prospect; continued property development; and – targeted over the next decade of service to the east side – an affordable housing initiative and a vision to renovate the existing church building into a community gathering and events center. And you’re invited to be a part of this transformation through your financial investment to support these efforts.

Through our work together, the east side will flourish, not flounder. Though the east side may be vulnerable, it will also be victorious. And where we find hope, we will find unlimited potential and possibility.
Impact Statement
Over the past year THC accomplished the following: increased enrollment in youth programs from 130 to 150; THC's high school seniors graduated from high school, achieved scholarships for secondary education, and acquired jobs; Marvin Daniels, Executive Director of THC, continues to expand our network of partner churches. THC provides asset-based character building programming during school year.  Summer programs/events for youth include a youth summer internship/employment program to employ THC youth to upkeep THC's campus that includes multiple properties and lawns. THC will provide meaningful employment and job training skills for youth without other viable employment options. Our community Juneteenth celebration brought families together to participate in fun, cultural education, including dance and spoken word. Our program youth also attend Kids Across America summer camps and mission trips. THC is working with experienced developers and city leaders to determine the best use our campus and multiple lots within our community.
 
As we look to the next year we have several goals we hope to accomplish: 
  1. Expansion of THC's spectrum of services to expand outreach activities to reach an additional 125 families.  We will do this through increasing our youth program numbers and providing additional community events (mother-daughter brunch, summer fun fest, etc).
  2. Through grants, implement an innovative playground that encourages physical and imaginative play and to develop a feasibility plan for a new community and family events space.
  3. Increase our Saving America's Youth (SAY) Yes! program for K-4th grade students.  The program objective is to provide opportunities for children to grow socially, emotionally, spiritually, culturally and educationally through the following eight internal and external asset-based building blocks: support, empowerment, constructive use of time, boundaries and expectations, commitment to learning, positive values, social competencies, and positive identity.
  4. Execute our Heart 4 Hope annual fundraising event generating $100K in funding toward our annual budget
  5. Acquire pre-development funding to finalize development plans for our Hope Center Campus, community center, and 15 contiguous lots where we hope to build a multi-family housing complex that will provide much-needed quality, affordable housing.
Needs Statement
  • Recruit more youth ministry volunteers
  • Increase quality of housing in the neighborhood we serve
  • Catalyze economic development opportunities in our community
  • Produce a comprehensive development plan for all of our properties, especially the main campus and contiguous lots
  • Improve and broaden funding strategy and development

Geographic Area Served Narrative The Hope Center is located on a main thoroughfare, Linwood Blvd, in the urban east side of Kansas City. We are in one of the highest crime zip codes, 64128. We focus mainly on the Sante Fe, Oak Park, Ivanhoe and Palestine neighborhoods. Our after school program pulls from 20 different Kansas City area schools.
CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement The Hope Center continues to embark on exciting and challenging initiatives with support and input from donors, staff, Hope Center families and neighbors and the Board of Directors. Our expanded mission and vision statements, thoughtfully wrought to encompass these new initiatives, remain underpinned by a strong corporate structure. The Youth Development work remains at the core of our mission and is supported by the staff and the Board of Directors. Each initiative is supported by an operating board made up of experts and volunteers knowledgeable about the area of endeavor. We will vigorously pursue funds to support our youth development work as well as the areas of need identified in our strategic plan and described above.  An ongoing challenge we face is diversifying our board. Thankfully, THC staff now embodies the diversity we hope for on our Board of Directors...and already we have added another person of color to our board.  We currently have a group of committed directors who are passionate about serving alongside the vulnerable people in the communities in the inner city. We are structured to look forward; to research, pilot and implement those initiatives which are necessary to meet the needs of the people and communities we are committed to serve.

Short-Term Success We measure literacy in our youth. Most of our kids improve at least one grade level in our LIT program and some improve as much as 4 grade levels in 1 year. Additionally, we scholarship Hope Center kids to schools such as University Academy that improve their overall academics and increase their chances of breaking the cycle of poverty. We measure retention - how many of our youth stay in the program given the high expectations we have - and how many return. We measure volunteer retention as part of our success because we strive to develop meaningful mentoring relationships with our youth and volunteer retention, ie our volunteers returning is an indicator of those strong ties to the kids to support the youths' growth. We track teen age pregnancy among our youth, arrests, school attendance, grades, and disciplinary incidents. Additionally, we track the youth much as concerned parents track their children, and dialogue about options, good choices and accountabity.
Long-Term Success Leaders from this program will be high school or college educated, hold jobs, live in the neighborhood, take pride in a safe community, restore housing, restore values by choosing to marry and have families, work for better schools, and restore the community to a safe, vibrant, good place to live and grow up and old.
Program Success Monitored By We have grown slowly on purpose so as to monitor and adjust our programs as necessary and so as not to expand and dilute the quality of what we do which is relationship based. A good measurement of our program is the LIT application form filled out each spring by youth in our programs that would like to be in our Leaders In Training program. It gives us insight into how our programming is working in the lives of our target youth, it gives us feedback and growth comparisions from year to year with LIT youth reapplying, and the numbers of applications gives us feedback as to the desirabilty of the program among the neighborhood youth - thus the change in culture in the neighborhood we seek as we build the leaders of tomorrow to restore their neighborhoods.
Examples of Program Success We had record numbers of students applying to LIT, record numbers of kids coming to Outreach Bible Study, a critical mass of long standing Hope Center children who are matriculating to high school who will enter our new section of LIT for high school and we have young adults who have "graduated" from Hope Center who are coming back to mentor the youth engaged at Hope Center today. Additionally, we have two young adults who attended Hope Center who attending college on scholarships procured through the Hope Center, we have one young adult who is a shift manager at a local Starbucks, we have one graduate who was just elected to the national board of the NAACP, and we have one who has joined the military - all positive choices and vastly different from the choices they would have made without Hope Center. Additionally, violent crime, and the number of teen pregnancies are declining while literacy and grades, school attendance and hopefulness are on the rise
Description AMPED is offered to high schoolers on Wednesday evenings from 6-8pm and is a small group Bible study (3:1 student to adult ratio) to enable deeper exploration of personal faith to encourage positive decision making skills, values and morals, and personal motivation and integrity.

Description We envision an east-side community where businesses can start and grow and the vulnerable have access to stable, living wage occupations and quality, affordable housing. Thus the mission of this program is to provide economic and real estate development opportunities so that the vulnerable can flourish.  We will focus our development efforts on what we will call THC's "Micro Community": Oak Park Northwest Neighborhood (Prospect Blvd to Benton Blvd and 31st St to 35th St)
Category Community Development, General/Other Community Development, General/Other
Population Served Families
Short-Term Success Short-term success would be defined by: ongoing beautification of our neighborhood through the development of vacant lots and renovation of old, dilapidated housing stock; the startup of businesses by both The Hope Center and local community members.  For THC that means renovating and selling two of the three houses we currently own that are available for a full renovation and starting one new social enterprise within the next two years.
Long-Term Success Long-term success would mean that our community becomes a place ripe for businesses to start and grow, with access to stable, living wage occupations, and full of quality, affordable housing. Sustainable economic and real estate development opportunities would exist throughout our communities so that the vulnerable can flourish.
Program Success Monitored By Program success will be monitored by the appraisal and sales price of the homes as it relates to other appraisals and sales in the surrounding area.  Success will also be measured by the health of the real estate market.  Business success will be measured by the number and quality of business plans developed by both The Hope Center and local community members...and by the overall health of the business community based on numbers researched by KC's Federal Reserve Bank.
Examples of Program Success THC has already renovated one home that houses a local family whose children attend HLA.  Two houses remain for renovation and sale.  In addition, THC recently acquired 15 contiguous vacant lots that, based on preliminary research, will be used to develop a multi-family housing complex.  Finally, THC has already hosted one entrepreneurship training event for staff and community members that will, Lord willing, begin to lay the foundation for ongoing business and social enterprise development.
CEO Comments
We are in a unique season at THC...knowing that we have provided excellent youth leadership development programming for the past 19 years, and in 2010 and 2011, laying the ground work for a family medical clinic and public charter school, while still recognizing that God has more work to be done for our community to become a place where the vulnerable can flourish.  That recognition is behind our desire to work hard toward expanding our spectrum of services to include families and increased outreach events...and launching a Community Development Corporation that will help catalyze housing and economic development opportunities for the vulnerable in our midst.
 
Accomplishing those things, however, will require increasing and broadening our revenue streams and base of funders who invest in the work that we do.  This work is already under way as we diversify our Board, deepen existing relationships, develop new relationships with community partners and funders, and create sustainable funding sources.
