The Calvary Community Outreach Network will expand the Helping Youth Plan for Excellence (HYPE) program to provide trauma assessment and treatment/referral services aimed at improving the wellbeing of youth.
HYPE will provide additional after-school and evening classes that integrate STEM, Visual & Performing Arts, Nutrition and Healthy Living practice. In addition, Calvary Community will convene and mobilize a Congregational Action Group, empowering congregations located in "hot spot" zones to help reduce violence in their neighborhoods through targeted activities.
Raising The Quality Of Life
Calvary COmmunity Outreach Networ envisions communities in which disparities are eliminated and the inherent dignity of all residents is recognized. Our mission is to improve the length and quality of life of urban core Kansas City residents, through ongoing innovative education, empowerment and partnerships.
The goals for this project align with these guiding principles.
Through this COMBAT funding we will add a Crisis Intervention Counselor and skilled program instructors to our staff. These staff members will be able to provide increased service delivery, including assessment, screening, referrals and follow-up.
Youth will have constructive free-time activity and outlets for positive expression. We will also be able to recruit and mobilize community leaders whose voices resonate in the hearts of their congregations
