United Way of Greater Kansas City’s work is focused on community impact, seeking to improve lives and strengthen communities. Our partnership with United Way has helped make it possible to reach Jackson County’s at-risk children.
We love partnering with AmeriCorps because it means we get to work with so many smart and passionate students and individuals in our community. We couldn’t imagine CAPA without these amazing members of our team.
