Many effective organizations currently exist in the metropolitan Kansas City area that provide services and goods to the underserved. Many of those organizations are also underfunded and many times struggle for existence. Without help, some will not survive. While Urban Action Partners’ resources are limited, it seeks those struggling organizations where UAP feels it can do the most with its limited monetary and consulting resources. UAP also partners with some other non-profits, charitable foundations and local, state and federal governmental agencies to increase the impact and effectiveness of their programs.
The emphasis of programs and partnerships of UAP is to benefit and improve the lives of those who dwell in the urban core and are underserved and who have very limited resources.
