Privately Funded by Passionate People

Shelter KC receives no government funds. Most of our income comes from individuals who have a heart and passion to serve Kansas City’s poor and homeless men and women. We’re grateful for each individual, family, church partner, and foundation that chooses to financially support the work of our rescue mission.

It’s a priority for our team to manage each dollar with honesty and transparency. We’re recognized as a 4-star charity by Charity Navigator and members of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA). Learn more about our memberships & associations.
