Our mission is to provide children with special needs the opportunity for an inclusive Catholic education in their home parish schools.

FIRE is an organization that provides financial grants to parish schools within the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph to assist with the cost of special education services in an inclusive setting. Inclusive Catholic Education helps each child to reach their highest potential, and enlightens the lives of all children by teaching acceptance, compassion and the value of every child of God.

“There is a very important spiritual dimension to what we are doing.  Jesus did not discriminate. And that is our teaching, the message of the gospel: that everyone made in His image and likeness should be treated fairly, given the same opportunities and become one in the family of God.” – Bishop Emeritus Raymond Boland
