Young Women on the Move
Young Women on the Move was founded in 2005 as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization on the belief that all girls, when given the tools and resources, can achieve their full potential and become vital agents of change within their families and communities.
They currently partner with the Kansas City, KS Public Schools to serve adolescent girls in six USD 500 schools. Trained staff, volunteers, and life coaches provide guidance and accountability as the girls set goals and journey toward self-discovery.
Charlie`s House was named in honor of Charlie Horn, a 2 1/2 year old boy, who was killed in 2007 when he attempted to climb a 30" dresser in his home. The mission of Charlie`s House is to prevent injuries to children in and around the home. A not for profit organization with safety at its core, this group of amazing volunteers is dedicated to keeping the community informed and engaged when it comes to preventing injuries to children.
Within the next 12 months, Charlie`s House plans to open a safety demonstration house in Greater Kansas City where parents, grandparents, and caregivers can experience firsthand how to safety-proof thier homes. The Safety Demonstration Home will be the only full service home safety experience of it`s kind in the nation. The location will also include a safety boutique display and space where home safety devices, products, and books will be available.
Charlie Horn was small, but his short life has left a huge impact on our community. Because of Charlie`s tragic story, thousands of accidents will be prevented and hundreds of children`s lives will be saved.
The mission of Operation Breakthrough is to help children who are living in poverty develop to their fullest potential by providing them a safe, loving and educational environment.
Operation Breakthrough also strives to support and empower the children’s families through advocacy, referral services and emergency aid.
