Above & Beyond

Toni Mitchum has a constant desire to help others.

It is no secret that Toni has the biggest
heart. She is the first to donate, volunteer, or offer
assistance.

Recently, a resident at Summit Square had knee replacement surgery. She is a single person living alone with her dog, Bella. She came in to ask for recommendations on where she could board Bella since she couldn’t care for her after her surgery. Toni stepped up and cared for Bella for almost a month while the resident recovered!

Toni’s generosity comes naturally and quickly. Another day, a frantic resident called to ask if someone could take him to the ER. Without a second thought, Toni grabbed her keys and raced towards his building. When they arrived, she waited inside with him to make sure he was checked in and settled. He is beyond grateful for quick actions and the kind gesture.

Toni is the person you can count on. We are grateful to have her on our Multi-Family team!

Courtney Keller transforms lives in the Dominican Republic by living generously.

Through some charitable work that Courtney does she heard about a family in the Dominican Republic that was going through a hard time. She learned that 3 sisters had just lost their Mother and that their Father had left them a few years earlier. These young kids were now on their own and vulnerable. The older sister, who was only 16 years old, had dropped out of school and was now trying to take care of the entire family. Courtney stepped in to help by donating much-needed funds for food and shelter. However, she knew that more needed to be done. She had seen pictures of their living conditions and knew they were in a bad part of town. These kids were in a very serious and risky situation.

Fortunately, we had just built a relationship with Global Orphan Project. In no time at all we developed a plan to manage the funds needed to get the three girls an apartment for a year, food, schooling, furniture, and connecting with their church for local support and community.

Adam Norblad's generosity falls well within the core value of Living Generously.

Adam has been diligently helping raise money for his best friends daughter who has been diagnosed with a very rare genetic disease.

Between NorthPoint and ColdPoint, enough money was raised to ensure that the family was able to continue to pay their daily expenses while spending every second in Children’s Mercy with their little girl. Their baby started her 6 weeks of chemo in September. The chemo should hopefully slow down the progression of the disease.

Adam’s drive to support his friend ensured that they could focus on their little girl.
