EOF Meeting 6.jpg

EOF is committed to the Promise of Community Action. But as impactful as we believe our programs to be, we know that we cannot make America a better place to live on our own. By partnering with other local agencies, local churches, statewide initiatives, and the United Way, we can expand the effort to bring many needed anti-poverty services to Wyandotte County.

EOF is part of several larger groups, boards, and committees who work collectively to effect change and improve poverty outcomes from the individual, family, and community level. EOF plays an integral part in working with various groups in the community more holistically, to minimize the causes and conditions of poverty in Wyandotte County.
