In January of 2015, Genesis brought together a group of 8 individuals representing helping organizations and Garden City residents to bring hope to a city where over 50% of the population can’t afford a basic survival budget. By God’s grace, that small group grew from 8 individuals to over 25 serving organizations, community residents, city government, and businesses working together “To improve the health and well-being of individuals, families, and neighborhoods of those most in need in Garden City.” It is comprised of both faith based and secular organizations believing that wholeness can come to Garden City from the inside out.
The Collaborative’s guiding principles for choosing projects and partners ensures they work together to meet the community’s most pressing needs. Currently, the Collaborative is focused on improving family and individual stability; this includes projects like health “pop-up” events and a campaign to reduce domestic violence.
