An extraordinary way to commit to serving our community!

Are you looking to join a group of like-minded people who share your passion for serving our homeless, hurting neighbors? Then consider
joining our Giving Circle!

Annie Chambers Giving Circle

This Circle is open to local women who have a heart for female philanthropy. It provides ongoing opportunities to invest in the lives of Kansas City women and children who turn to City Union Mission in their time of need.

Each day, women come to City Union Mission in need of food, shelter and healing. Providing a meal feeds their weary bodies, but healing a hurting soul takes time. What if you could support the long-term care of other women who need to recover from homelessness?

Our History

Annie Chambers was once known as the “Midwest’s Queen of the Red Light.” With the salvation of Annie came an investment in City Union Mission and an expansion of our Ministry.

This legacy of female philanthropy and service inspired us to start the Annie Chambers Giving Circle, an association for women to help women.

Our Mission 

The Annie Chambers Giving Circle’s mission aligns with that of City Union Mission, as an evangelical Christian ministry committed to sharing the gospel and meeting the spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of women and children who are facing poverty and homelessness.

Our Vision

The Annie Chambers Giving Circle desires to equip each member to be a productive volunteer and advocate for women and children throughout the Kansas City metro area.

HOW TO JOIN – Calling all women!

  1. Donate $50 monthly or $600 annually to City Union Mission
  2. Volunteer once a month or more

The members agree to volunteer a minimum of once each month, whether it is onsite or explore other creative off-site opportunities throughout City Union Mission.

“Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds and to be generous and willing to share. In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.”

~ 1 Timothy 6:18–19
