IMPACT Ministry Family Resource Center


The IMPACT Ministry Family Resource Center is an assistance ministry based at FIRST, which includes a Food Pantry 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 our communities. You may call our 24-hour phone line, (816) 229-8030 (option 1), to hear prayer and words of comfort from the Bible.
