Growing Futures Early Education Center, serves more than 200 children and their families with Early Head Start and Head Start programs in Johnson County. The services they offer include comprehensive support services including health and nutrition services, onsite play therapy, parent education, mental health, medical and dental health, family support and engagement opportunities.
 
Shawnee Mission Rotary Club + Growing Futures
The Shawnee Mission Rotary Club has worked to support Growing Futures for many years. Whether it is garden clean-up, painting projects or fundraising, the relationship has been growing as our members are committed to help Growing Futures with their work to serve our kids. In 2020, we asked how we could help further. They wanted to know if we could help them purchase an onsite vision screening device.
 
Onsite Vision Screenings 
The Federal Government requires Growing Futures to perform a mandatory vision screening within 45 days of the program semester start date. Normally, an onsite screening day required an outside provider to come to the center. If a family missed a school on a screening day, they would have to work to schedule an outside appointment. Having a screening machine onsite means greater flexibility and the possibility of screening during home visits. Anything to lessen the impacts of hassle in families' lives can translate to better growing and learning on the part of the children.
 
Help Us Close the Gap!
We are nearly there! We just need $2,238 dollars to raise all the funds required! The machine costs $6,470. We have $2,820 in Rotary District Grant Funds, $1,410 in Club Contributions. Can you help us close that gap? Donations of any size are greatly appreciated.

The Micah Ministry 
(Monday Evenings, 5:30 to 7:00 p.m.) 
“He has shown you, humankind, what is good; so, what does the LORD require of you, but to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God…” (Micah 6:8) 
The Micah Ministry is the urban, ecumenical outreach mission of Independence Boulevard Christian Church to the homeless and food insecure in the historic Northeast area of Kansas City, Missouri. The Micah Ministry is a C.U.I.C. mission (“Churches Uniting in Christ”) designed to encourage Christian unity, end racism and “feed my sheep.” (John 21:15-17) It is centered around a table ministry of home-cooked suppers in which faith-based and civic volunteers partner and seek to embody the call to evangelism by heeding the words of the prophet Micah.
