STEP Coalition Meeting Phase 2

STEP Coalition Meeting Phase 2

About This Campaign

Goodwill and Episcopal Community Services are inviting the community to join the STEP Coalition to bring together public officials, nonprofit organizations, community leaders, corporate employers, and Kansas City problem solvers & innovators. Our objective: to break the cycle of poverty by giving people the tools to get ahead – one step at a time.

Both Goodwill and Episcopal Community Services have worked with and met amazing people who need a hand up and the tools to be successful. We know they want to break away from the system and while Goodwill’s mission is to empower individuals to earn and keep employment, the crushing fear of the cliff upon which they stand can prevent them from taking the next step to independence. The goals are to remove income inequality, increase social capital and enhance family structure for everyone in Greater Kansas City. That’s why we are so passionate about STEP, Self-Sustainability Through Employment Programs.

The Phase 2 meeting will be an overview of identified barriers for individuals in Greater Kansas City and brainstorming solutions for the identified barriers in the following topics: community, individual/employee, and employers.

Campaign to Support Goodwill of Western Missouri & Eastern Kansas

Goodwill empowers people with disadvantages and different abilities to earn and keep employment through individualized programs and services.  For nearly 125 years, Goodwill has provided services in and around Greater Kansas City.  On average 90¢ of every dollar Goodwill spends supports LOCAL programs and services like Quest Academy which gives individuals with barriers to employment a real-life work experience and skills to enter the workforce, GoodWORKS Career Resource Centers, which provide free career exploration assistance and is open to the public, and the Career Impact Program that pairs individuals with different abilities with career navigators and career coaches to succeed in the workplace.

Goodwill is a leader in sustainability, annually diverting 15 million pounds of computers, paper, clothing and textiles from area landfills, recovering the value through resale and recycle. As a member of Goodwill Industries International, we are a part of the world's largest and most successful network to provide employment and training services for people with different abilities. Goodwill empowers YOU to maximize your impact through employment, training, donating and recycling.
