How You're Investing in Kansas City's Greatest Opportunity

The Family Conservancy creates equitable opportunities for all children to thrive and experience wellbeing throughout their lives, because the first five years of life represent the most important period of human development.

We support educators and expand the capacity of the early education sector. We empower children and families to address their immediate needs. We help children and adults develop resilience.

Children transition to kindergarten ready for success. Parents experience increased well-being, and advocate for their children. Individuals and families develop social-emotional skills and healthy relationships, learn coping skills and heal from trauma.

Children grow up in healthy communities with thriving families and experience well-being throughout their lives.


Children received support to prepare them for success in school and life.


Teachers, child care providers and preschool teachers trained to support kindergarten readiness.


Families received the tools they need to support their child’s health, happiness and education.
