The Upper Room envisions healthy and vibrant urban core neighborhoods. Our mission is to transform and revitalize urban core neighborhoods by offering and supporting quality programs, including education, comprehensive health care, jobs, and community and economic development.
Our main programs include our Summer Academic Program & our After School Program, which provide education to the children of Kansas City and prepare them for a greater future. These opportunities, among others, fight poverty and try to escalate the standard of living for all those in the urban core at no cost to the families. We serve approximately 3,000 students each year. To learn more about the history of the Upper Room, please visit the Our Story page.
