Welcome House is ideally situated in Kansas City’s historic Beacon Hill, accessible to public transportation, employment opportunities, and healthcare providers (just a mile from Hospital Hill). The more than 100-year old structure is deteriorating and is in need of costly repairs and renovations.
Over the years, Welcome House has been multi-purposed as a residential facility, entry-intake location, 12-Step meeting venue, office space, jobs and skills training area, and gathering place for our many programs. Most of the time, Welcome House operates at capacity and frequently has a waitlist for admission. As a result, there is not enough space to support the current programming, increasing demand, and future growth.
A Modernized Center to Serve More Men and Families
To accommodate demand, support our expanding recovery and rehabilitative program, and better serve clients, Welcome House launched a $13.5 million campaign to build a new 28,000+ square foot Welcome House Recovery Center and therapeutic residential facility.
The new construction will allow our census to grow and serve more men, an expansion from 80 beds to 100+ beds. The facility will house classrooms, offices, computer lab, chapel, and wellness and community engagement space. Outdoor spaces will include a basketball court, recreational, and gathering areas.
