The mission of Next Step KC is to offer financial products, educational opportunities, and services, including free tax preparation, which move people from financial dependency to independence and stability.
Next Step KC is a community-based non-profit organization working to encourage affordable and appropriate financial services and products to low- to moderate-income families in the Kansas City area.
The organization was created in 2013 through the merger of three existing initiatives -- KC CASH Coalition ( free tax preparation), Fair Community Credit (s mall-dollar loan program) and Bank On Save Up ( financial education).
The merger was undertaken to support a broader, more effective, year-round program taking better advantage of staff, community opportunities and collective reach of the three initiatives.
The July 2013 merger created a single organization with a consolidated budget and a single board of directors.
