Big news! Nurture KC is proud to be an inaugural Impact 100 organization by the United Way of Greater Kansas City. United Way launched Impact 100 to provide funding to 100 organizations addressing vital health and human service needs in our community. Nurture KC will use the funding to continue to improve maternal and infant health in Kansas City.
“This grant will help the moms and babies in our Healthy Start program. It will go right to the heart of where it’s needed most,” says Tracy Russell, Executive Director, Nurture KC. “We are honored to be named to United Way’s Impact 100.”
From the United Way: Every Impact 100 organization maintains a high bar of organizational accountability and effectiveness in terms of finances, governance and impact in the community. Our rubric included a variety of factors, and ultimately led to this initial Impact 100 being very diverse – in terms of geographic regions served, organizations led by people of color, focus areas and more. This year’s impact 100 organizations cover the following domains: child welfare, healthcare access, food security, housing and financial stability, positive youth development and early childhood development.
