Help a family have a very merry Christmas this year!
The mission of Grace United Community Ministries is to work hand in hand with families and individuals in our Northeast Kansas City, MO community to address their basic physical, educational, and spiritual needs to empower them to break the cycle of poverty and live a purposeful life.
The Grace United Community Ministries Adopt-A-Family project ensures that families receive Christmas joy, warmth and food. You will receive a list of requested items, and can expect to spend approximately $50 per person to cover food, a gift and a clothing item. Adoptable family sizes range from 2 people to 10 people, making this a great opportunity for small groups or organizations.
Please use our online sign-up form to select the family you wish to sponsor. Upon completion of the form, you will be asked to donate $25 to cover the cost of purchasing a turkey or ham for your chosen family.
For questions about Grace United Community Ministries: Adopt-A-Family contact Lindsey Arnold Seevers at (913) 232-4163, or email using the form below.

Goats are a great investment for our partners in Haiti as they provide agricultural, economic, and nutritional benefits to their owners. A family that receives a goat commits to sharing the offspring with others, and the whole project is managed by local micro-finance and community health committees. It's truly the gift that keeps on giving!
Your $25 donation provides 1/4 the cost needed to purchase a goat.
