6 Ways You Can Make an Impact

6 Ways You Can Make an Impact

Every day we positively impact the lives of children, youth and families throughout our communities. However, we certainly can’t do this without your help. Our volunteers, supporters, and all of you who invest in our work are just as much a part of our mission as our case workers, nurses, educators and therapists. Here are six ways you can make an even bigger impact in 2017:

1. Volunteer with us.  We have volunteer opportunities for all interests and skill-sets. Let us help you find the opportunity that best matches you, or your group

2. Attend an event. We have a wide-variety of events throughout the year. Check out our list of upcoming events to help us benefit the communities we serve.

3. Give a gift. Financial and in-kind gifts allow us to grow our programs and services, and help provide the resources and supplies our children and families need. Learn more about how your gift can make a difference.

4. Become a foster parent. In the Northwest Missouri region, including Kansas City, there are more than 3,000 children in need of loving and supportive homes. Learn more about becoming a foster parent.

5. Become a respite care provider. Respite providers care for foster youth for a short period of time – anywhere from 24 hours to a few days – which can help eliminate compassion fatigue and burnout among full-time caregivers. Learn more about the different types of foster care.

6. Attend (or host) a community training. Our team offers innovative learning opportunities to help engaged community members build skills to improve the safety and health of our communities.
