The City You Never See: Bus Tour with YNPNkc

Thursday, November 17 @ 3:45 pm - 5:30 pm • Organized By Nonprofit Connect
3039 Troost, Kansas City, MO 64109


Join YNPNkc and Operation Breakthrough for a real look at poverty in Kansas City. The tour begins and ends at Operation Breakthrough and includes 5-6 stops at various points in the surrounding neighborhoods. This tour will show you places– just minutes from the Country Club Plaza and the Power & Light District – where children stand in line for food, where working parents desperate for shelter break into abandoned buildings, where Missouri babies born into poverty struggle to survive. Along the way, you’ll get to meet families who will share their personal experiences with you. 

Although the bus is heated, guests are encouraged to dress comfortably and appropriately for the weather.  

Please Note:  The bus tour includes explicit testimony on such topics as domestic violence, substance abuse, and prostitution.
