Northeast Community Center
Our mission is to promote the healthy growth and development of children in our diverse community through the study and practice of the performing arts. We accomplish this by providing music education to measurably improve academic and personal outcomes for children and families of the Northeast Community.
Since 1908 . . . we have supported and provided resources to the underserved families of the Northeast Community. The Northeast Community Center has formed partnerships, in affiliation with Christ Presbyterian Church, with other not for profit agencies in the area to coordinate efforts toward improving the lives of the residents of Northeast Kansas City.
In 2015 . . . the Northeast Community Center launched Harmony Project KC, an intensive music education program for deserving children in Northeast Kansas City. Its mission is to promote the healthy development of children through music. To build healthy communities. To develop children as ambassadors of peace, hope and understanding. The program is an affiliate of the acclaimed Harmony Project of Los Angeles.

The Honorable Charles Shangler's legacy lives on through his beloved Northeast Community Center, the charter school he founded, Scuola Vita Nuova, and Harmony Project KC, where hundreds of young lives continue to be transformed by his generosity. We will miss his leadership and gentle spirit. http://obits.dignitymemorial.com/dignity-mem…/obituary.aspx
