Outreach is, by virtue of our focus on accountability and teamwork, a transparent organization. To truly embody this principle, we recently flung open the doors to our new HQ space in KC’s Crossroads District to welcome friends, family, and supporters both new and old into our first floor gallery space to help us celebrate our move-related milestone with our first-ever open house!

It was a real treat to see so many friendly faces, and an even bigger treat to watch those faces grow flush with delight as we showed off our new building, shared some of the incredible photos taken in our partner communities over the years, and explained our unique, proven approach to resolving chronic poverty. One of the best things about Outreach is that the more you learn about us, the more confident you get that we’re nailing it.

Here are some snapshots from our big night— thanks a million to everyone who came by, said hello, or sent their thoughtful regards over to cheer us on. We’re thrilled to finally be here, and brimming with excitement over all the amazing things yet to come. You’ll see!
