Restart Warehouse

Restart Warehouse helps those who are starting over again. We have all fallen down and from experience we know it’s tough to stand back up, dust yourself off, and start from scratch. We want you to know that you are not alone, and you can do this. We want to help by giving you home items for your beautiful new beginning!

Restart Warehouse is located in Independence, Missouri. We are a community resource center that helps the people of the Greater Kansas City Metropolitan Area, whom have been referred to us from other area organizations. These organizations work with people who are in the process of big change. It could be homeless rehabilitation, addiction recovery, divorce, death, returning military, or a number of other factors that bring people to a restarting point in life. These are people navigating change and working through it with the help of our partner organizations.

We are a small, grassroots organization with big dreams of opening warehouses nationwide! More info on that, coming soon!

Hot Stiletto

Hot Stiletto in Kansas City, MO hosts a number of events to support victims of domestic violence. The annual Hot Stiletto Shoe Charity Party is a fundraiser. It allows the organization to distribute the proceeds from ticket sales, auctions and donations towards the program and additional needs of the women housed at the domestic violence shelters. Through the party, the club seeks to raise awareness about domestic violence and help women.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City provides a fun, safe environment for kids to learn, play, grow and meet new friends.

From sports to education and group activities, the Clubs provide quality programs to thousands of area kids every day. Kids who may otherwise lack the resources for such opportunities.

The number of children left home alone with no adult supervision has only increased over the past 10 years. That’s why the Clubs are open before and after school, snow days and some holidays, providing a positive outlet for kids during their free time.

Giving these kids a wholesome place to go and some positive guidance is the key to bettering their lives … building their self-esteem … and providing a GREAT future for the kids who need us most.

Wayside Waifs

Our Mission

Wayside Waifs is a charitable animal shelter whose purpose is to place adoptable companion animals in responsible homes. To accomplish this, we employ 3 key strategies:

  • Providing temporary shelter for homeless companion animals.
  • Educating the public.
  • Developing partnerships, collaborations and strategic alliances.


Our Philosophy

Wayside Waifs is committed to finding homes for all adoptable pets. Wayside is the largest pet adoption campus in Kansas City, placing over 5,400 animals each year in loving forever homes. Wayside does not euthanize adoptable animals, and there are no time limits for animals in our care. Only animals suffering from significant medical issues or those that pose a danger are humanely euthanized. Wayside Waifs is proud to be a part of Kansas City’s no kill community.

There’s a smart way to end the water crisis.

Millions of people around the world could get access to safe water in their homes with the help of small, affordable loans.

That’s where comes in. We are here to bring safe water and sanitation to the world through access to small, affordable loans. There is both a need and demand for these loans, because when people have access to safe water, they get time back to go to school, earn an income and take care of their family. It changes their world.

For more than 25 years, with your help, we’ve been providing families with hope, health and the opportunity to break the cycle of poverty.

Your donation is a powerful catalyst.

One of the major barriers to safe water and sanitation is affordable financing. We address this barrier head-on through access to small, easily repayable loans. Every repaid loan creates a new opportunity for another family.

By supporting, you are part of a solution that reaches more people. This makes your donation go further. So far, we have reached more than six million people – and there are millions more whom you can impact today.
