Everything We Do Is Driven By Our Mission

Inspired by Christian faith, Bishop Sullivan Center shows God’s love to people in financial hardship by providing food, help in finding jobs and other aid.

Beyond material assistance, Bishop Sullivan Center strives to build relationships between those who live in poverty and those who do not, promoting mutual understanding and affirming the dignity of all.

Working in service of that mission, we are making a difference in our community.

For more than half a century, Bishop Sullivan Center has worked to lighten the load for neighbors in need. With two locations in Kansas City’s urban core – one in Midtown KC, and one in the historic Northeast – we’re working to meet the changing needs our neighbors face with a focus on affirming the dignity of all.
