We hope you will become a member of the "Circle of Friendship," an auxiliary dedicated to helping meet the needs of the children of Operation Breakthrough. When you join, your annual dues will go directly to the children's programming. You choose your level of investment: a once-a-year gift of $35, $60 or $125. Auxiliary dues help Operation Breakthrough continue offering free services to the children and families who need us most. The average family at Operation Breakthrough survive on income of less than $1,500.00 a month. About one in four children is homeless. We could not begin to provide quality care and education daily to 400 children in need without a lot of friends to help.

With your membership at any level you will receive invitations to special "Circle of Friendship" gatherings and a listing in the "Friends" directory to be printed this fall and distributed to all members. We'll send you information about our events and let you know of volunteer opportunities should you decide you would like to spend some time with us, as well. You'll receive a standing invitation to tour Operation Breakthrough and bring your friends and family to meet the children--the best way to help the children's circle of friends grow wider and wider.

You'll also receive the good feeling that comes from knowing that you have become part of something bigger than yourself. By joining, you'll be connecting with others across the metro area in supporting some of our community's most vulnerable children, children who just need a friend or two to help them reach their great potential.

For more than 40 years Operation Breakthrough has always relied on its friends to become what it is today – a nationally accredited early education child care center and social service agency that daily touches the lives of 400 Kansas City children. Please join us in befriending them. Please fill out the form below exactly as you would like the information to appear in the membership directory.
