Kansas PRIDE Impact

In 2014...community volunteers invested nearly 65,000 hours on various local PRIDE Initiatives, with 713 ongoing and completed projects. Youth were involved in 275 projects, and more than $381,600 were invested in our projects through private and public funding. It truly is amazing what can be done with a small amount of money and volunteers.
