Our Mission

To provide children with special needs the opportunity for an inclusive Catholic education in their home parish schools.

Thank you for a successful FIREBall 2017 – Una Noche Caliente! We are humbled by your generosity to that ensures all children in our Catholic community can continue to learn together. Please visit our FaceBook page for pictures of our fun night!

Check out our 2017 FIRE Video HERE. Please enjoy our story of a little boy headed off to Kindergarten with his brothers. This is the gift of inclusive education that our Founders wanted all kids in the Kansas City-St. Joseph Diocese to have.
