This quarter’s newsletter is dedicated to:
Do you ever feel as though the issue of violence is too complex, and there’s nothing you can do to change it? Start by joining us.
Your donation allows us to provide crisis intervention to families who have experienced tragic loss, including relocation for families who are in imminent danger due to violent crime. We are saving lives in real time, one person, one family at a time and you can join us.
This year we have several ways for you to give. Plan a Giving Tuesday gift now, before you’re overtaken by Black Friday and Cyber Monday, to provide healing and justice for families in our Kansas City community.
To see more volunteering and giving opportunities, check out our Giving Tuesday website by clicking here.
Double your donation!
If you use Facebook, this is an excellent opportunity for your $ to go further! Beginning 11/28 at 7 am donations will be eligible for fund matching, while the match lasts, for donations given through Facebook. Also, they’re waiving fees for donations all day which means every cent of your donation will go directly to AdHoc.
Raise awareness and host a breakfast or holiday party with a purpose. Ask your friends and family to join together to change lives. A little from each of us can change the course of someone’s life.
AdHoc adds minor home repair to list of victim services through a continued partnership with the Jackson County Prosecutor’s Office. The renewed partnership will leverage much-needed trauma-informed care and minor home repair to those who qualify.
