Review for Lazarus Ministries at Grand Avenue Temple, Kansas City, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been honored to serve on the Board of this wonderful group. They are tireless in determining the needs of the sojourners (homeless population) in metro Kansas City. From a heart perspective, they have boundless compassion for the folks who are struggling on life's journey. From a steward perspective, they always evaluate the needs, make sure not to duplicate services of others and adjust to their findings. They are able to balance both sides of the equation.

Will you volunteer or donate to this organization beyond what is required of board members?
