...And a Happy New Year

Thanks to so many of you, Gracious Promise was able to provide Christmas to over 830 children. FromWith just a tiny part of the 1500 items given in the "Walk to the Manger", this little girl was thrilled to put together a fabulous ensemble. individual donors to churches and businesses who gave generously, these children felt love and their parents were truly grateful that people cared enough to reach out in their time of need. There were many volunteers that work long hours to make sure that the gifts would be ready on time.

We also want to thank those who gave an end of the year donation and those who gave throughout this challenging year. We fully realize that times are tough, and we appreciate that, in spite of the current climate, you are still willing to give when you know that it will touch lives.

We are so excited to tell you about our plans for 2014. There is always much to do, but we believe that God is ready to do great things in our community.


The Work Continues...

Dear Friends,

We have some very good news! We have received a wonderful response from several of you and through the generosity of several churches Gracious Promise will be able to pay off all its debts and cover expenses for the rest of the summer. So, apparently, God is not finished with us yet. We praise him for this gracious provision. Please continue to pray for God's wisdom and direction going forward.

Still Working in Difficult Times (and FOX4NEWS Feature)

As many of you have heard, things have been difficult for our organization over the last few months. We have moved from our Kansas City facility to a small office in Overland Park. At the same time, we reduced our staff by over fifty percent. 

We have responded by reaching out to local churches and setting up a satellite location in Wyandotte to meet with all our clients downtown. At the same time, we have meeting with other clients at various locations (such as meeting them at the DMV to help with identification issues or meeting with them at transitional housing sites) and giving them assistance over the phone.  

However, even after the downsizing, funding continues to be an issue. In mid-June, our board strongly considered closing the organization but a local church asked us to explore other funding options with them. 

In the midst of all this, Fox 4 News was kind enough to feature our organization and send out a plea to continue the work that that has done so much for families in Kansas City.

Regardless of our current circumstance, we would like to say thank you to all of our donors past and present. You have allowed us to touch so many lives. We hope to touch many more.


So Many Ways to Give for the Holidays

We are so thankful for everyone who has given to our organization. We know these are tough times for everyone. Whether you give financially, volunteer or contribute items to help our clients, we extend our gratitude and pray for God's blessing on you and yours.

We wanted to let you know about some ongoing and upcoming opportunities.

  • During the holidays, donations of clothing and household goods overwhelm our staff and community service. If you're good at counting or good at quickly tallying those counts, we desperately need your help. We're looking for a few volunteers that would be able to come in for a day or two every month. We'd love to work with you!

  • Our child and adult mentoring program is accelerating and we hope to begin our on-site programming soon. If you would like to be a mentor, or if you like working with children on arts and crafts projects, we have a place for you!

Contact or call Dana at 913.342.1707 extension 107 for more information.

Our Day in Pictures



We're currently recovering from our Gala and Tea Party. It was an amazing day. We're so thankful for everyone who came out!


As we promised, we have uploaded pictures from yesterday to a photography site. Most of the Tea & Tiara pictures are already up, and more Gala pictures will be uploaded as the weekend progresses. We will probably post some event photos on but going to these links and purchasing prints allows us to defray our event costs. We appreciate everyone that gives and has given by attending these events. Please contact us if you need any assistance. We want to make you happy. (
