What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Benilde Hall is looking to expand housing and treatment options for the homeless population in Kansas City. Supplying housing is a great benefit but more is needed. It is vital to address factors that can lead to homelessness. Out-patient services are needed for those that move on from transitional housing to permanent housing. Relationships built while in a transitional setting should carry on to the next level of care. Funding for this is limited. We are also looking to build more permanent housing for long term recovery. We own property that would support low income apartments. These properties are close enough to Benilde Hall that residents could easily continue to use Benilde Hall for treatment and other supports.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Benilde Hall is looking to decrease the number of homeless in the Kansas City area. In 2021 Benilde Hall has acquired a new house that will house 6 more men for level 4 treatment services. This will add to the ability of these men to build stability for a better future. Benilde Hall has a goal to add 25 more beds by the end of 2021.
Benilde Is working toward educating our community and state about what recovery looks like. We want our communities to see that people in recovery have a lot to offer.
Benilde Hall is trying to make a difference in the inner city. Adding housing will help improve neighborhoods.
We will continue to work toward acquiring more property to add more beds. The men in these beds will also be provided with treatment services. These services include case management, counseling, peer services, and more.

In 2021 Benilde Hal;l is looking to buy and or build property. The effort has been aided by a past board member Lynda McClelland. Her efforts as a real estate professional have been a huge asset. She helped us find the newly acquired "Dr. Thomas Hall House" that will be opening on April 1st of 2021. This house will house 6 men. We will continue to look for more properties to purchase in order to create the extra bed space needed. Benilde Hall will continue to work toward improving our community at many levels.

Benilde Hall has a great working relationship with Country Club Bank. They have been an asset to achieving goals for new housing options.
We are working with Assel Grant Services to aid in finding opportunities to build on property already owned by Benilde hall. Working on grants will add some ability to improve the area around Benilde Hall.

We have purchased one house. We will be adding 6 beds for men. This will help bring the number of beds at Benilde Hall up to 107. We will continue to work toward acquiring more property to add more beds. The men in these beds will also be provided with treatment services. These services include case management, counseling, peer services, and more.

  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
