The Economic Opportunity Foundation, Inc. is also known as EOF. Our service area is Wyandotte County and, more specifically, Kansas City, Kansas. With a population of over 165,000, we are the 4th most populous county in the state, and more than 16% of our community lives below the Federal Poverty Line. The Dotte's per capita income of $18,912 is over 30% lower than the Kansas average.
This is why we exist, to fight this disparity and all its causes. EOF is a non-profit Community Action Social Service Agency and your local advocate for anti-poverty policies and programs to help low-income families reaching for improved opportunities in the areas of employment, housing, and all other supportive services.
