Amethyst Place has been caring for some the most vulnerable women and children in Kansas City since 2000. It was founded in response to a high rate of relapse among single mothers after substance use treatment. Because of mental health, financial, educational, and legal barriers, these women had no choice but to return to the same communities where their substance use began, threatening their recovery and the stability of their families. For 20 years, Amethyst Place has filled this gap. We currently serve 50-60 families a year, including more than 70 children, half of whom are under the age of 5. As the only agency in Kansas City that provides private apartments and supportive services to mothers in recovery and their children, Amethyst Place empowers families by helping them build healthy relationships, secure permanent housing, improve their educational outcomes, and gain economic stability.
