Lives: Not Numbers
AdHoc has often been referred to as “Kansas City’s Social Service Emergency Room.” Like a hospital emergency room, AdHoc responds to traumatic circumstances. People come to us when they have no where else to turn. Unlike a hospital emergency room, most of the trauma that arrives on AdHoc’s doorstep cannot be fixed with medicine and bandages.
From the beginning, AdHoc has understood that it cannot act alone and has developed many civic partnerships in order to be an effective community resource. Your donations help increase our capacity to serve families and individuals during times of crisis, like Antonio.
My name is Antonio, and I’d like to introduce you to my father, Eliud. This picture was taken when he was just a few years older than I am now. My father was a great man. He was taken from us October 26, 2017 while trying to break up a fight. That is when AdHoc entered my story.
“Without these (counseling) sessions through AdHoc my life would be at a much darker place. It would feel impossible to see that there is Hope.”
Together, with your help, we can support families like Antonio’s.
Donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law.

Community Guardian Awards
This annual event is to pay tribute to the service and commitment that our honorees have displayed in selfless acts to create a healthier and safer community, commend the works of AdHoc in bringing healing and justice to Kansas City and celebrate our founder Mr. Alvin Brooks’ birthday.
Fresh Start Program
Threats of violence make it unsafe for a person to testify or continue to reside in their current home. AdHoc saw there was a need to give these survivors a way to escape the threat of violence and have a Fresh Start.
