Open House of The Children's Place

April 13, 2023

The Children’s Place, 6401 Rockhill Road, Kansas City, MO 64131

Join us in celebrating 45 years of impact in the Kansas City community at our open house, taking place on Thursday, April 13. All are welcome to join us for an evening with friends and to learn more about the transformative healing that takes place every day in our new building, which opened in late 2020. 

We will be offering immersive tours of our award-winning building at set times throughout the afternoon. Step into the shoes of a child we serve as we tour through the building as they experience our programs, including experiencing what an art therapy group is like, learning how children arrive to and from our building each day, and more. These tours will last approximately one hour and RSVPs are required.

Regardless of whether you will join us for a tour, all are welcome to join us throughout the afternoon for light bites with friends in our lobby. RSVPs are encouraged but not required. We encourage you to bring a friend!
