The problem is that historic discrimination and disinvestment made Troost Avenue the racial and economic dividing line of our city. Today there are thousands of people struggling to survive and succeed, trapped in poverty and trauma. As a result, our city is divided and the strength of our neighbors and community remains hidden.
Our Mission is to cultivate a community seeking reconciliation to transform Troost from a dividing line into a gathering place, revealing the strength of all.
Our Vision is that Kansas City, no longer divided by Troost, is revealed as a thriving and vibrant community inspiring reconciliation across the nation.
