A Bridge to a Brighter Future
Operation Breakthrough Expands

Operation Breakthrough ExpansionOperation Breakthrough started in 1971 by Sister Corita Bussanmas and Sister Berta Sailer as a response to requests from parents in the central city for quality child care for children of the working poor. The program began with 50 infants, toddlers and preschoolers at 31st and Paseo. They moved to Troost and expanded to reach more children in 2006 – to more than 400 children, ages 6 weeks to 13 years. But Sister Corita and Sister Berta weren’t done dreaming. Now with their Bridge to a Brighter Future and the new expansion across the street, they can now serve almost 300 more children each day.

The new facility is Operation Breakthrough's Expanded Learning Center. The space is filled with 10 special learning labs that focus on specialty areas like robotics, digital media, and the arts. This expanded learning center is connected to the original building by the new Troost Bridge.

Mayor James said, "Building a bridge across Troost is really a powerful symbol of a bigger dream. One that would combine and alleviate division between the citizens of this city, whether they're black or white, rich or poor, young or old."

Central Bank of Kansas City is proud to be a part of this new expansion through the allocation of New Markets Tax Credits. We are proud to help support Operation Breakthrough with their amazing mission of lifting up our youth to help them to build a brighter future.
