Gun Violence Prevention Resources

Kansas City gun violence prevention resources

To ensure you have the gun violence prevention resources you need to feel safe in your home and in our community, we’ve gathered information about resources across Kansas City, Kansas and Missouri.

The greatest gift we can bestow on all Missouri and Kansas children and grandchildren is the opportunity to grow and thrive in an environment free of the threat of gun violence.

We invite you to share it with anyone in need.
