A Good Year
Our fiscal year ended on September 30, and it was a good year. That expression is often used in the wine business when referring to the quality of the harvest. While we’re not a wine company, we are interested in producing the best possible outcomes for the programs and services we provide.
Our move into the Prospect Office located at 6025 Prospect in Kansas City was the capstone moment of the FFY2018 year, it’s how we led into the fiscal year. The building provided much needed space, is located on a major bus line route in the city, and as an added bonus the Full Employment Council is in the same building providing employment opportunities and job training.
In the first quarter we conducted nine Community Action Poverty Simulations (CAPS) which educate the public on what it is like to live in poverty and the challenges faced. We added a new Pantry Partner to our already 28 partners to help us feed more than 160,000 people, and we lead the state of Missouri in weatherizing homes.
Internally we gained three new Board of Directors, and we hired two additional Quality Control personnel to ensure our compliance with all programs. Click on the link below to learn more about our numbers and successes.
