SKC encourages community involvement and sponsors four local charities, Kids TLC, Operation Breakthrough, The Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City, and Safehome which provide employees many opportunities throughout the year to give back and help the less fortunate.
Kids TLC makes a difference in the lives of children, adolescents, and families in our community who are facing challenges from autism, mental health, or wellness issues by providing timely resources and services of the highest quality that lead to hope, healing, and transformation.
Operation Breakthrough is the largest single-site early education child care and social services facility in the state of Missouri serving over 400 children daily from the urban core. The mission of Operation Breakthrough is to help children who are living in poverty develop to their fullest potential by providing them with a safe, loving and educational environment. Operation Breakthrough also strives to support and empower the children’s families through advocacy, referral services and emergency aid.
The Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City
For more than 100 years, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City has been making futures brighter for kids in the
urban core. Annually, the BGCGKC impacts the lives of over 8,000 young people in our community by providing a fun and safe environment, along with positive guidance. The organization’s mission is to promote the development of self-esteem, values, and skills for boys and girls, ages 5-18, with special emphasis on youth from disadvantaged circumstances.
Both of SKC’s owners and our CFO serve an active role in one of the charities as a board member. Additionally, our remote employees also strive to make a difference in their communities by participating in local charities.
Through these charities, SKC employees have spent countless hours mentoring youth, cooking meals throughout the year and providing holiday gifts for less fortunate families.
Safehome provides a healing atmosphere where survivors of domestic violence can gain inner strength, build self-esteem, explore options, and establish a life free of violence. Through Safehome’s shelter and community services, approximately 8,000 individuals each year receive the support they need to lead healthy, independent lives.
