Community Organization Support


Several organizations in Kansas City help support Passages Youth Center, through monetary gifts, donations of food, or just simply providing their time by being here. Please visit the links below and help us sponsor them back!

 

Street Outreach Services is at Passages almost every Wednesday.

They provide services for immediate needs, referrals, resources, and education to runaway and homeless youth up to age 21. For more information please call our toll-free hotline at 1.888.233.1639 at anytime to speak with someone immediately.

 

 

Grinders restaurant provides several pizzas every month.
They're located in the crossroads of Kansas City (near 18th and Gillham). They're food is wonderful, and they're LGBT-friendly!

 

 

Hen House in Leawood donates their non-selling baked goods to us every week.

We receive 1-2 shopping carts FULL of baked goods, from fresh baked breads, cookies, cakes, cupcakes, and more. Practically everything we serve on Saturdays comes from this Hen House.

 

 

PFLAG of Kansas City has donated time and food for our pantry.

PFLAG is a wonderful organization of caring people to help support the family and friends of LGBT people (as well as the people themselves). They meet monthly in Prairie Village. Visit their website for more information.

 

The Missouri Gay Rodeo Association is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the western lifestyle and producing rodeos with a commitment to raise funds for charitable organizations within our community. The MGRA continues to be a leading supporter of Passages.

 

Please visit these organizations and help support what they do!
