At Community LINC, our mission is to end homelessness for this generation and the next. We envision Kansas City as a community free of homelessness and one full of equity and opportunity for all our neighbors. For the past 35 years (and counting) we've taken steps toward that goal, ending homelessness for thousands of children and their parents in the Greater Kansas City area. In fact, since 1988, Community LINC has served over 4,690 families in our community-15,609 individuals, including 10,384 children-with either shelter or programming.

We don't merely provide housing assistance to families, though-a feat unto itself. In addition, through our suite of programming, we provide clients with the tools and skills they need to become self-sufficient and reach their full potential, including: employment services, budgeting assistance, mental wellness, and robust children's programming. Our trauma-informed approach addresses what we know to be many of the root causes of poverty.
