The needs in our city and in the world are great and we are helping meet those needs through strategic relationships with our mission partners.
Hillcrest Transitional Housing
We're about helping people get back on their feet – for good. Through our partnership with Hillcrest Transitional Housing of Lee’s Summit, we don’t just give a hand out, we help give a hand-up, helping people go from homeless to self sufficiency through an incredible 90 day program. 95% of the people who walk into Hillcrest without a home, without a job, without hope – graduate with all of those things, as well as the confidence to start life out fresh again.
Lee's Summit Social Services
Right here in our own community, Lee’s Summit Social Services is where the people on the front line of fighting against hunger and poverty are hard at work. LSSS is a local, non-profit organization that for 20 years has served the community through its Thrift Store, Food Pantry, and services to help people budget, pay utilities and find employment, among many other things.
We proudly support Lee’s Summit Social Services throughout the year and have daily opportunities for you to help out in the food pantry or thrift store.
If you are interested in serving with LSSS, please contact Ted, their volunteer coordinator.
Lee's Summit Elementary School
Located in downtown Lee's Summit, Lee's Summit Elementary School's purpose in education is to develop the necessary skills for life and learning. In addition to providing top-notch education, "extras" such as friends, mentors, activities, special gestures, and fun are part of the LSE experience. These "extras" make memories that embody the very roots of our community. Through our partnership with LSE, we provide mentors in classrooms, Christmas gifts each year and funding for the CARES program to meet the physical needs of students.
To find out more and to volunteer at Lee's Summit Elementary, email Jan Higdon.
Our mission team works with Project H.O.P.E., an inter-denominational service organization dedicated to meeting the immediate physical needs of the impoverished people of Managua, Nicaragua, while sharing with them the Good News of Jesus Christ.
