“It’s That Time of the Month!” The KC Athenaeum's Philanthropy Committee is accepting monthly donations of feminine hygiene products for the ladies at Amethyst Place. These necessities can't be purchased with food stamps. The moms often miss school during their periods because they can’t afford these products that we take for granted. If you're one who is thankful that you don’t need them anymore, consider donating a box! Leave it on the porch of an Athenaeum member or send us a message and we will give you a drop-off address.
Amethyst Place serves 50-60 families and over 100 children each year. Our typical client is 30 years old, raising 2 children under 7 years old, with no more than a high school education, living on less than $10,000 per year. She was probably in foster care and/or was a runaway as a youth, and she grew up in a family with a history of drug and alcohol addiction. Most of the women as well as many of their children have suffered significant trauma prior to their residency here: 90% of our clients are dually diagnosed with substance abuse and a severe mental illness and 70% of the children have a history of foster care or other placement not with their mother. Women with a history of work in sex trafficking, as well as women recently released from prison or on probation make up a significant percentage of our population. A family who is accepted into the program receives 24 hour supervision, collaboration with community based case managers, as well as on-site therapy in a supervised drug-free environment. Each resident develops her own individualized treatment plan in conjunction with a treatment team made up of case managers, DSS workers, and therapists and must work, go to school or attend drug treatment at least 20 hours per week. All families are given a fully furnished and decorated apartment when they come in to our program. Families who graduate successfully keep the household furnishings, allowing for a smooth transition to independent housing. Programming brings community speakers who provide critical connections, nurture visions for the future, and build skills and personal strengths. Our on-site therapist is essential to successful family reunification and stabilization, helping women and children overcome the significant traumas suffered prior to their residency. Mentor pairs, two women who are already friends, are doctors, lawyers and other professionals from Children’s Mercy, Hallmark, Lathrop Gage, Lockton, Sprint, Travois, and Brighton. Mentors help their mentee set individualized, achievable objectives that, when met, increase confidence in their ability to manage greater challenges. Over half of our residents do not have a high school diploma so we place a strong emphasis on improving educational outcomes. We offer on-site tutors for residents working toward GED completion or in college. We provide free wireless internet access to our residents, refurbished laptops, and a fully equipped computer lab. Our supported employment program, 100 Jobs for 100 Moms, matches a mom with a business willing to provide on-the-job-mentoring and support her as she also furthers her education. Families may stay as long as needed, based on progress toward mutually agreed upon goals. The most immediate outcome we observe at Amethyst Place is how quickly our children stabilize when they have a room they call their own. We see improved educational outcomes, less illness, and fewer behavioral problems.

Our Club year begins soon! We have lots of fun, interesting and philanthropic activities planned for 2017-2018. Leave a note here if you would like an invitation to meet our members and learn more at our Reassembly Day on September 13.
