IMPACT Ministry Family Resource Center

2016 IMPACT Header

The IMPACT Ministry Family Resource Center of Eastern Jackson County is an assistance ministry based at FIRST, which includes a Food Pantry, Diaper Center, and Caring Listeners. We partner with other area churches, businesses, social service organizations, government agencies, and individuals to serve community families.

Our mission is to help meet the emotional, physical, and spiritual needs of low-income families and individuals in crisis throughout eastern Jackson County (currently serving Blue Springs and Grain Valley zip codes).  You may call our 24-hour phone line, (816) 229-8030 (option 1), to hear prayer and words of comfort from the Bible.
