Twenty years ago Amethyst Place was established to bring families in recovery home to heal. In this span of time, you rallied around our mission and inspired others to do the same.

Your generosity is overwhelming and your commitment is unwavering, even in the midst of a pandemic. In fact, you gave $76,567 between March until today for our campaign, A Mother’s Love. You have transformed the lives of 974 women and their children.

So, we created this newsletter just for you. You’ll find it to be filled with deeper insight of your contributions, upcoming events, staff-related news, and program updates. As a small token of our appreciation we've included a memento. Please enjoy this adult coloring page of our community building located at 28th and Troost created by local artist Demetrius Hawkins.

Thank you for helping us deepen our impact.

Congratulations to the Amethyst Place
Class of 2020!
Class of 2020 
Metropolitan Community College of Kansas City
Associate’s Degree in Nursing
Nearly half of our residents enter into our program without a high school diploma. Thanks to you, they don't leave Amethyst Place the same. Your support empowers our residents to continue their education and pursue their career goals. This spring we honor and recognize the achievements of our three college graduates; Emily, Mandy and Victoria.  

Mandy shared, “I started school while I was at Amethyst and was able to only work part time and sometimes not at all so I could focus on school. I went to MCCKC-Penn Valley Nursing School. I got my Associate’s Degree in Nursing so I'm a Registered Nurse. Without Amethyst I would have never dreamed I could accomplish something like this and take care of my kids at the same time. But I did it. And now I am working at Saint Francis Hospital in Tulsa as a Nurse Tech until I pass my boards this summer. After that I have been offered a job as an RN on a Med-Surg telemetry/psych observation unit. I plan to pursue my Master’s through an RN to MSN bridge program starting in January.”
From all of us at Amethyst Place, thank you for life-changing support.
