Metro Lutheran Ministry will formally open a new branch of its Learning to Earning program at 750 Armstrong Ave. in downtown Kansas City, Kan., with a ribbon-cutting at 4 p.m. Monday, Nov. 17.
The Learning to Earning program has been very successful serving the community from MLM’s Central offices at 3031 Holmes, Kansas City, Mo.
The new location, inside the old Kansas City Kansan building that had recently been used as artists’ space, will allow access for more residents in need and expanded services.
Learning to Earning is designed to help participants manage their lives and solve the problems faced by many homeless and low-income residents.
The program includes personalized coaching, assistance with work placements, help in completing the GED and other types of support.
By using the resources available through Metro Lutheran Ministry’s other community care and emergency assistance programs, Learning to Earning is able to deliver high-quality bundled services in an effective, efficient manner from a competent, compassionate staff who are sensitive to citizens’ needs, desires, and struggles, according to program officials.
