The Central Avenue Center of Hope is a local agency housed in a converted gymnasium, near downtown Kansas City, Kansas in Wyandotte County, staffed by one full-time employee and many volunteers.   The community served consists of many homeless, unemployed or under-employed, low- income individuals and families. 

Many of our clients face the difficulties of medical conditions, emotional problems, or broken or harmful family relationships. Some are veterans who have not transitioned into mainstream society. Others have become victim to economic or health reversals. Yet others have lost homes and means of support due to substance abuse and/or the stigma of prison records.

School-age children lack appropriate clothing and school supplies in order to go to school.  The needs of the people of this community are seasonal for some and on a daily basis for others.
