JACKSON COUNTY KIDS NEED OUR HELP

Our Funded Partners Making an Impact on Jackson County Kids

As mental and behavioral health continues to be a growing concern in the local community, we’re proud of the critical work our funded partners are doing. It isn’t someone else’s problem. It is our responsibility to support kids, youth, and their families and build a healthy, thriving community. Since 2018, we’ve awarded more than $68 million to 195 programs across Jackson County. Learn more about our dedicated partners and their innovative programs below.

Funding Children's mental health

Why it matters

It's easy to think that kids are naturally resilient and not susceptible to the same issues as adults are. But childhood is where many of those adult issues begin.

What our funded partners say about the CSF

MaryAnnMetheny-HopeHouse

"The CSF team are the most wonderful people to work with — so understanding and tuned in to what’s going on. They’ve allowed us to keep kids safe, help them get their childhood back, and enjoy it again."

MaryAnne Metheny, CEO at Hope House in Eastern Jackson County
KirstiMillar_ReDiscover

"The CSF funds have allowed us to grow the Zero Youth Suicide program. Without their support, we could not have added the therapists needed to support the increasing number of youth facing mental health challenges. Their support has been the biggest game changer for us!"

Kirsti Millar M.S., LPC, Program Manager at ReDiscover in Lee’s Summit
StarlaBrennan_AmethystPlace

"Many of us don’t realize that each purchase we make in Jackson County provides essential mental health support to children in our community. In just five years, 1/8 of a cent sales tax has allowed the CSF to fund $68 million into local nonprofits, including Amethyst Place. Thank you for prioritizing the little ones!"

Starla Brennan, Executive Director at Amethyst Place in Kansas City
