Mattie Rhodes Monthly Community Outreach Update

John Fierro, Mattie Rhodes Center President

Greetings! My name is John Fierro, President of the Mattie Rhodes Centers here in Kansas City. We’re proud to announce a new public-private sponsored content partnership with our community partners at The Northeast News. Every month we’ll be bringing you information on programs designed to serve the community in which we live and work.

Events we host are free such as, COVID-19 vaccination clinics conveniently scheduled on Saturdays so as not to compete with work schedules of our families. Johnson & Johnson, Moderna and Pfizer vaccines and boosters will be given at our Northeast location on North Topping Avenue.

During the month of March we’ve partnered with Goodwill to offer a Digital Skills for Job Seekers program led by Sierra Faust, a member of our Community Resource Team. The four-week program covers everything from computer basics, mastering g-mail accounts, Google Suite and Internet basics. Upon completion, program participants will receive additional resources from MRC in their job search as well as a $50 VISA gift card! Hurry though, only ten slots are available. To register, email Sierra Faust at Sfaust@mattierhodes.org.

Check back in this space the last week of every month to see what exciting events are coming up over the next month. Please visit our website as well to learn more about our mission and our passion to serve the communities where we live and work!
