Homecoming: It’s Good To Be Home
For 20 years Amethyst Place has provided safe housing and supportive services to hundreds of mothers in recovery and their children.
Our passion for healing generations and eradicating poverty is only empowered by community-minded individuals like you. This year, you can help us celebrate this major milestone all from the comfort of your home!
Our virtual Homecoming event will be held on October 10, 2020 at 7 pm. This fun, interactive, and energetic experience will take you through the extraordinary 20-year history of Amethyst Place and into our exciting future as we grow our impact for generations to come.
You’ll get a behind-the-scenes look into the critical work of our Coaches, meet the Founders in our Hall of Fame, and cheer for our Hometown Heroes: the families of Amethyst Place. We hope you’ll pull out your dancing shoes and best Homecoming attire to enjoy our “Halftime Performance” while witnessing the unveiling of our custom-commissioned mural by local artist JT Daniels.
This production will be streamed for free from our Amethyst Place channel on YouTube Premiere. To support our mission, we’re also offering VIP ticket packages for purchase that include a deliciously catered meal by Urban Cafe KC (to those in the Greater Kansas City area), Yearbook program, and Amethyst Place swag all delivered to your doorstep. Tickets are available now! Please explore how you can support this important event below.
