We envision a community where all children have trusting, nurturing and loving interactions with the adults in their life. These interactions form foundations for future learning and social-emotional growth, especially early in life when brain development is rapid.

Our seventh annual Blue Carpet Event will feature one of our most intensive and successful home visitation programs that helps at-risk families overcome postpartum depression, cope with stress, and create a loving, nurturing environment for the child.

Mother of all Happy Hours

A Simple Way to Help Kansas City Mothers and Their Babies

The Mother of All Happy Hours is about mothers helping mothers. During this grassroots event, area moms (and dads!)  host parties asking their friends to donate baby items. These simple necessities allow struggling parents, who are enrolled in programming that fosters self-sufficiency and stability, to meet the basic needs of their children and focus on improving their lives.
