Operation Breakthrough is a nationally accredited, not-for-profit corporation that began in 1971 as a response to requests from parents in the central city for quality child care for children of the working poor. It is the largest single-site early education and social services facility in the state of Missouri serving over 400 children daily from the urban core of Kansas City.
The mission of Operation Breakthrough is to help children who are living in poverty develop to their fullest potential by providing them a safe, loving and educational environment. Operation Breakthrough also strives to support and empower the children’s families through advocacy, referral services, and emergency aid.
Besides early education services, Operation Breakthrough provides before- and after-school care for children, ages 5-13 and has a large array of supportive services on-site – including a food pantry, clothing closet, Children’s Mercy health clinic, dental clinic, and therapeutic services.
There are currently no LVs serving at this site.
