From Concept to Reality. 

Welcome to the latest update on the Recovery for Life Capital Campaign—a testament to our commitment to addiction recovery, life-saving initiatives, and the reunification of families. What began as a $10 million project to establish the new Welcome House Recovery Center in Kansas City reached its culmination on July 31, 2023, as residents transitioned from our century-old building to the cutting-edge facilities of the Welcome House Recovery Center.

Originally conceived to address the growing demand, expand our recovery and rehabilitation programs, and enhance client services, the $10 million campaign faced unforeseen challenges due to extreme market volatility and historic spikes in construction costs (46% according to the U.S. Census Bureau). Despite these hurdles, the Welcome House team persevered, and the final construction costs totaled $14.2 million, leaving us with $3.2 million to raise.

Thanks to your generosity, we have raised over $11 million to date, and we are profoundly grateful for your support. As we approach the completion of the final construction phase, we turn to you once again to help us bring this campaign to a triumphant close. Your contribution is not just a gift; it makes you a crucial partner in our vision for a brighter tomorrow. Our initiatives are grounded in evidence-based practices, providing tools for lifelong recovery. Your impact plays a pivotal role in supporting our holistic approach to whole-person healing. Join us in making a lasting difference and shaping a future marked by resilience and recovery.


Our generous community united for $2M Challenge!

In April of 2022, Welcome House reached an important milestone inthe Recovery for Life Campaign. Thanks to our kind and generous community, Welcome House secured gifts and pledges needed to fulfill the Mabee Foundation’s $2 million challenge grant.

Mabee’s generous grant, along with gifts and pledges from individuals, foundations, and businesses, helped us hit the $10 million mark and significantly advance our campaign.

But we haven’t crossed the finish line!

Our work continues as we seek gifts from our community – contributions of all sizes – to raise the remaining funds. 

Contributions may be shared as a one-time gift in the form of cash or other appreciated assets such as stocks or mutual funds, or pledged over a period of years. To learn more, please contact Vice President of Administration Christy Wineland at at 472-0760.
