How Amethyst Place Came To Be

We stand on the shoulders of giants and are forever indebted to the vision, creativity, hard work, and passion of the Amethyst Place founders. Without a clear blueprint in hand, they built an innovative program that transforms lives, heals generations, and continues to be an industry leader in Kansas City and beyond.

From humble beginnings in a 7-unit building on 11th & Benton, Amethyst Place has served more than 354 families, including 683 children since our founding on May 1, 2000.

One of our founders, Penny Clodfelter, shares the story of our start.


When you make a gift, you empower generations of women and children to achieve recovery, reunification, and resilience.

Help us build brighter futures today!
