Glory House Services has been a sponsor of the Haitian Symposium since its creation. Once a year we gather to discuss wealth creation in Haiti with Kansas City’s leaders who have a passion for Haiti. Using presentations and round-tables, we discuss various wealth creation initiatives, water projects, Artisan partnerships, education and development of local leaders. Check back later for dates of the next Symposium.
During the 1976 Bicentennial year, former Kansas City Mayor Charles B. Wheeler, formed the Ethnic Heritage Committee, now none as the Ethnic Enrichment Commission. The Commission was established to focus public attention on the area’s rich cultural heritage. Glory House Services (GHS) joined the Commission in 2005, as representatives for Haiti. GHS participates in the annual Ethnic Enrichment Festival, the Diplomatic Ball, the American Royal Parade, and various outreach opportunities throughout the metropolitan area.
The Communiversity is a 501(c)3 organization at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. The Communiversity was founded in the fall of 1970 and is the largest all-volunteer adult education program in the country. The Communiversity provides various services and programs at no charge to UMKC students, and at a nominal fee for everyone else. Glory House Services provides Creole classes four times a year.
