News and Events
We are proud to be named an inaugural United Way Impact 100 organization. This year, United Way launched the Impact 100 to provide unrestricted funding to the 100 organizations they believe are addressing the most vital health and human service needs in our community. At, Grace United Community Ministries, we will use this funding to help us continue to work hand in hand with families and individuals in our Northeast Kansas City, MO community to address their basic physical, educational, and spiritual needs so as to empower them to break the cycle of poverty and live a purposeful life.
WELCOME TO A RICH PAST AND AN EXCITING FUTURE
Grace United Community Ministries is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, incorporated in August, 2004. We are an inter-denominational, faith-based ministry with a holistic approach to working hand-in-hand with the community to address the area’s largest problems.
Under the leadership of founding director Rev. Sharon Garfield, Grace responded to the needs of northeast Kansas City by providing shelter for battered women, establishing one of the first soup kitchens in the metropolitan area, helping to find low-income housing, providing reading tutoring for children, and setting up a food pantry and clothing closet for those in need. Her vision continues today and includes a new computer lab among other major renovations. We look forward to serving our community well into the future.
