Redemptorist Center works closely with state and local nonprofit agencies such as Salvation Army, MOCSA (Metropolitan Organization Combating Sexual Abuse), Jackson County Prosecuting Attorney/Victim Assistance, Collaboration Works, The Children's Division (formerly Division of Family Services), Seton Center, Westport Cooperative Services and Hospice Care. Area health care providers such as Swope Parkway, Truman Medical Center, Truman Eye Clinic, UMKC School of Dentistry and St. Luke's Hospital are part of our ongoing Health Maintenance program. The Center partners with agencies that do not have their own emergency assistance programs in order to provide direct assists to their clients. The Center is a board member with the local EFSP (FEMA) Food and Shelter program, and actively involved with Mid America Coalition's Agency Relations Committee. These collaborations of interest result in more effective ways to best serve people in need.
The Center maintains strong alliances with metropolitan utility providers to help resolve client payment issues, and with health care providers who provide vendor discounts to our clients. When a client's financial needs are so overwhelming a single agency cannot meet all of the expenses, the Center partners with other agencies that specialize in a specific area- United Services, Westport Cooperative Services, Literacy Kansas City, the Housing Information Center, etc. This insures that individuals will receive maximum financial and service benefits to help them with their needs.
