The Upper Room is a nonprofit organization that addresses educational equity in inner-city Kansas City. Our mission is to provide high quality, educational out-of-school programs while actively engaging and challenging a diverse population to enjoy learning from cradle to college.
We work to transform and revitalize urban core neighborhoods by offering and supporting quality community programs.
