The Children’s Place: Where hurts find hope.

The Children’s Place is a leader –locally and nationally –in trauma-responsive care for children as Kansas City’s specialized trauma treatment agency. The Children’s Place provides four distinct programs to offer a holistic continuum of care and a multi-disciplinary approach to mental health healing. We encourage anyone with a hurt – physical, emotional, or relational – to seek help. We know early intervention has the power to mitigate future health and social issues.

OUR MISSION is to help children and families heal from life’s deepest hurts. We work to restore childhood. We tirelessly pursue, find and celebrate healing for young children in our community who have faced trauma, enabling children to lead happy, healthy, hopeful lives.

Cultural Competency is the genuine sensitivity, acceptance and respect given to all people with the ongoing awareness and development of skills that foster effective and open communication.  The Children’s Place will create a safe and caring environment honoring all individuals.
Diversity at The Children’s Place means the recognition of each individual’s potential and uniqueness for the fulfillment of the mission and the advancement/vision of the organization.
