Located in the heart of Kansas City, Missouri and home to 7,816 people, the Ivanhoe neighborhood is experiencing a period of unprecedented renaissance. The renaissance began in 1997 when Alan A. Young and his wife took the lead in organizing prayer vigils that resulted in the closing of 6 drug houses and revitalization of the Ivanhoe Neighborhood Council.

We take great pride in announcing that our organization has met the qualifications to become an United Way Agency, a major accomplishment that we have been pursuing for a number of years! The three-year grant will provide funding assistance for our Positive Alternatives for Youth Programs, including the addition of college preparedness classes. We are grateful to the United Way for this opportunity!
