UNI Mission Statement
The mission of the Urban Neighborhood Initiative (UNI) is to break the intergenerational cycle of poverty and historical racial inequities caused by decades of neglect and systemic racism by helping to build healthy neighborhoods that enable all children and families to thrive. UNI is bringing together business, government, and community organizations together to improve opportunities in the communities it serves.
The effort to revitalize Kansas City’s urban core is built on three pillars: health and safety, education, and prosperity. Working with partners from business, government, and community organizations, UNI is able to address these areas of priority.
