L. Minor Care Center

1112 E. 10th, Kansas City, Mo


The newly renovated L. Minor Care Center (LMCC) is a ministry of City Union Mission that offers shelter in a secure environment for as many as 35 men who require more individualized care and attention than can be offered in the Men’s Center, based on the following criteria:

  1. 1. Men with mild to moderate mental health issues.
  2. 2. Elderly men, depending on their health status.
  3. 3. Physically handicapped men.
  4. 4. All men must be able to tend to their own basic needs, meaning – he is able to feed himself, shower by himself, dress himself, and is mobile. Staff assistance may be required in the area of reminders, but a staff person should not have to intervene in the basic daily functions.


How does a person get enrolled in the LMCC?

  1. 1. The man presents issues that cause him to not fit well in the general population at our Men’s Emergency Shelter.
  2. 2. The individual is nominated by shelter managers and case managers for entry into the LMCC.
  3. 3. The individual is approved by the special needs committee.
  4. 4. There is space available.

Note:  Outside agencies cannot make recommendations for men. They must be evaluated by shelter staff for recommendation to the LMCC facility.
