Visitation is a member church of the Kansas City Communities Creating Opportunity (CCO) organization. Kansas City CCO is a federation of 100 faith-based congregations throughout the city. CCO focuses on improving living conditions in our community. Using community organizing, CCO and its member congregations work to address concerns and resolve concerns in their neighborhoods.
Our local organizing community worked on issues including housing, payday loans, healthcare and the Brookside Business District. For the past decade, our Visitation CCO team has focused on the issue of public education in Kansas City.
Visitation CCO envisions a city that gives high priority to quality public education and works together to meet that end for all children.
Visitation CCO is a Catholic faith community that connects to the larger community by building relationships, sharing research, encouraging communication, advocating for high quality public education from early childhood through high school, seeking accountability from all public schools and the community.
