CO-CHAIRS:

MEMBERS:
Brook Bailey, Dan Culver, Lauren Palmer, Wale Akinmoladun, Kelisen Binder, Leah DiCarlo, Brice Harrison, Emily Harrold, David Kim

Each year, the Legacy Committee selects a project with the intent to bring a long-lasting benefit to the Kansas City community. The committee plans the project, leads the project, and organizes the Centurion volunteers to participate in the project. The 2018-2019 legacy project is Community LINC.

MISSION:
The mission of Community LINC is to end homelessness in Kansas City for this generation and the next. Like the Centurions, Community LINC endeavors to affect long-lasting and impactful change in the Greater Kansas City community. Each year, it serves nearly 300 potential future leaders of the Greater Kansas City community: children. Community LINC chooses to serve families because it recognizes that by investing in the future of the children, it is investing in the future of the community. Community LINC envisions a future in which no child served will ever experience homelessness again. Together, Centurions and Community LINC can support the collective objectives of building a stronger Greater Kansas City.

RESPONSIBILITIES:

The 2018-2019 Legacy Project will work to extend and expand the capabilities of Community LINC. There are two components to this project. The first component is to establish and organize a cataloging inventory system for all donated household items in their receiving area. These donations are used to prepare on-site apartments for homeless children and families. The second component is to modernize and renovate the Children's Program Elementary Center to be a warmer, more welcoming learning environment. With the help of Centurion Volunteers, Commmunity LINC is committed to achieving the following outcomes:
  • Providing a renovated and updated Children's Program center space that is user-friendly, welcoming and organized
  • Cataloging of all inventory and organzing the basement
The committee will work to make the 2018-2019 Legacy project a reality and will help determine the 2019-2020 Legacy project.
