The Why

Better Together grew out of the passion and conviction of its founder, Rev. Jennifer Bryan. While teaching English to Congolese refugees in Argentine, a Kansas City, KS neighborhood, she saw too many families living in “the gap,” too poor for marketplace insurance, uncovered by KanCare, or too young for Medicare.

Rev. Bryan and the Better Together Board of Directors believe that every person has the right to know their health status and to have resources to be proactive in maintaining or achieving good health, regardless of their ability to pay for services or have English proficiency.

Our Past

From 2010 to 2015 Better Together was a partner of 9 Health Fair in Denver, CO and Quest Diagnostics, one of the largest blood analysis corporations in the US. We hosted 100% volunteer-driven health screenings and education events at a number of Kansas City locations.

Our Present

From 2015-2018 Better Together restructured and moved into Argentine's Metropolitan Avenue United Methodist Church where we now offer an in-house medical clinic and English classes to better serve our diverse community. We continue to cultivate hope for uninsured residents, immigrants, and refugees.
