Strategic Plan 2015-2018

Mission Statement: Assistance League of Kansas City, a chapter of National Assistance League, fulfills specific unmet needs of children and adults in the Kansas City area through philanthropic programs developed, funded and operated by dedicated volunteers and community partners.

Vision Statement:  Together…making our community better  

Commitment:  We believe that providing compassionate and caring services to individuals in our community is the standard and the primary measure of our organization.  We believe we exist for the sole purpose of providing philanthropic services to meet the challenges posed by a diverse array of compelling individual and community needs.

Leadership:  We believe that the full measure of our leaders and members is the sum of the products of their vision, professionalism, ethics, sensitivity and the quality of responsiveness to individual needs.

Ethics:  We believe that integrity and authenticity in communication and action best demonstrate the most basic, intrinsic values held by members of this organization.

Accountability:  We believe that full accountability is the responsibility of our members. It is an appropriate expectation of this organization by those who support our work and those who receive our services. We believe that this responsibility demands and drives prudent fiscal and physical management, transparent internal and external relationships, viable program assessment and reasoned evaluation of organizational performance.

Respect:  We believe in the intrinsic value of those we serve and of those with whom we serve.  We believe that we can best demonstrate our respect for this value by providing fair and equitable treatment of our members, community volunteers, the recipients of our services, and our donors and funders.
